- Eastwood Fast Etch 1 Gallon
How long will fast etch last once applied? I assume it can be reapplied?
I used the fast etch and I have heave white build up even after wiping it off. I have reapplied and scrubbed it with a brush and an still getting white streaks. I have used thinner to wipe down as well as wax and grease no joy. No what?
After applying Fast Etch and wiping it off with Pre or Acetone, will Body Soldier stick to it?
What drying time before priming
I recently tried out fast etch on some heavily rusted areas and the rust has turned black with small white deposits, is this similar to how the EW Rust Converter works or do I need to use multiple applications?
I used fast tech inside the windshield pillar of my Corvair to neutralize some surface rust on the inner layer and I will be making patches to repair the outer layer. Should I coat the treated inner layer with encapsulator? Or is fast etch enough?
I wiped this Fast Etch onto a sheet of cold rolled steel with a rag to get off some mild flash rust. However, it caused white streaking all over the metal and know I can't get these streaks off. What is it and how do I prevent that or remove it?
I'm a little confused. I sanded my trunk lid down with 80 grit. Apply fast etch over it to help kill and remove the rust / pits. I wipe down with PRE prep and epoxy primed. Is that right or did I need to sand the zinc phosphate coating off.
