PRE Painting Prep Gallon is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use PRE before all of your painting! I bought a small amount of the PRE to see if I liked the product and how well it worked. Now I buy it by the gallon and use it before any painting. I use it after sand blasting or the solvent tank to remove all dust, grease, residue, etc. Then I use the compressor to blow all of the PRE out of any small areas so that the piece is totally dry. It is a bit pricey so definitely buy the gallon as it takes a fair bit to rinse a part. I would love to see it for cheaper but either way I highly recommend this for any painting prep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Solvent PRE has been very effective in eliminating grease and oil from surfaces that I need to paint. It also serves as a general parts cleaner. PRE really prepares a metallic surface if you apply it with a very fine grit paper. Nitrile gloves are a necessity for product use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repeat Customer...This Stuff Works!!! This is my first large purchase of Pre, but I've used plenty of it in aerosol & I have to say that it works very well as your final step before painting or finishing. I use it quite often to clean up any residue that's left over after polishing aluminum & it's never disappointed. I'd highly recommend this if you do a lot of painting, polishing, or any other refinishing jobs that require a properly-prepped surface to yield an end result that looks professional & one that lasts for years.

Will this product be safe to use on top of body fillers?

Asked by: Kzzz
You can certainly wipe this over top of fully cured body filler. Just don't let it soak in. Spray it on and wipe it right off.

About PRE Painting Prep Gallon

Prepping an entire car? Now PRE is available in gallons at a savings over quart pricing. The cleaner of choice for removing residual grease, oil, wax, road tar, buffing compound, even silicones.


1-gallon can


Works better than lacquer thinner that can leave a film behind, possibly compromising paint adhesion. Use to prepare surfaces for all Eastwood paints, including our exhaust manifold paints. On waxed areas, or surfaces that may have silicones, more than one application may be necessary.

PRE Painting Prep is a blend of solvents that may damage plastic, so please test first.
