Pre Painting Prep Aerosol 11 oz is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I purchased this along with the Chevy Blue paint to repaint my 468 BB, to say the least I was impressed. Customer service helped me track my shipment from start to finish as I wanted to material to arrive in only 5 days which it did and delivered on a Saturday just in time to begin prep and paint. The PRE cleaner is amazing I used a wire wheel to remove the old paint and then applied the PRE treatment and the block looked brand new! I applied 5 coats to the block and the finish is absolutely great. If you are painting your engine block Eastwood is the way to go. Side note I also have used the PRE as a degreaser its far and away better than the stuff you can get off the shelves

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleaner, Surface Prep and Seam Sealer Smooth I purchased seam sealer and this product to seal seams on my 66 Cobra I am building. The video on the seam sealer suggested using the pre Painting Prep to smooth out the sealer and it worked exactly as advertised. After brushing on the seam sealer; spray a little of this stuff on an smooth it out with a brush or your finger ... looks very professional

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pre Painting Aerosol This product worked well for me in cleaning vinyl surfaces for paint. Cleaned the surface once and let dry, cleaned a second time and let dry again before paint and it worked well. It is also useful in cleaning small parts such as bolts and even wires that have gotten oil or grease on them. Follow with an application of simple green which leaves a slight sheen and you are done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but I have had 3 cans quit spaying I have purchased several of these cans and they have worked great but recently I had 3 cans quit spraying. I called to let Eastwood know but nothing was done.I threw the cans away since they didn't perform. I tjink they should have given me credit or sent me new cans. I have bought there products for yrs and highly recommend them although I have had only a few problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good stuff. I bought this for cleaning the large plastic areas on my Chevy Avalanche before using Eastwood Plastic Resurfacer. It appeared to work as advertised. I don't recommend using this for large areas as it sprays a small direct stream. When applying it directly on the surface it wouldn't spread evenly over the surface. I sprayed it on a soft cloth and then spread that across the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff This pre-prep aerosol works great! I've never had a clean surface to paint, without a boat load of work and time. I was shocked at how quickly the pre-prep cleaned the surface. I bought it on a dare from my dad, who also didn't think it would work very well. We were both shocked. So much so, that I bought a case to have on hand. Thanks, Eastwood!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I have been using both the 30oz. and the aerosol PRE for the last few years. Since using these materials all of the contaminants that somehow manage to get into the project have been eliminated. Far fewer fish eyes and better adhesion of paint products to a super clean surface is what we all try to achieve in our restorations. PRE works!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pre Paint with Internal frame & 24" extension Used the internal frame coating and it worked well however did get some dripping from over holes in the frame. When I tried to use per painting to clean the 24" extension it leaked and the cap of the can. It did clean the 24" extension but the 24" extension doesn't fit the painting prep can correctly.

Is this used before paint or before primer?

Asked by: dckustom
Yes, Prep painting prep is used before primer and paint too ensure the surface is clean.
