Eastwood Silicone Wax Dirt Powder Remover Pre Painting Gallon

Application Tips

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pre prepping anything for primer and paint I am using it now on everything I plan to prime and paint including my engine, suspension parts, drive line, fiberglass, pretty much everything. It also neutralizes fast etch on parts I am treating for rust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recoating? You gotta have this! Cleanliness is next to Godliness when it comes to recoating anything. Most people don't realize that they drive dirt and grease into their recoat project when sanding and prepping. PRE will clean all that off your project and evaporate cleanly, leaving a coatable surface ready for your recoat. This is a must have product for any recoat project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "PRE" for preparing the surface. Used the PRE painting prep to assure a clean surface of wax, greasy body oils, etc. I highly recommend this for removing any unwanted products and debris from the surface prior to any sanding of the project.

My Chevelle chassis. I plan to strip to bare metal, wipe down with POR 15 metal Prep, followed by Eastwood pre painting prep, then coat with Eastwood rust encapsulator and finally coat it with Eastwood Chassis Black. Is this a proper way to do it?

Will this product work effectively if there's still some patchy paint and primer on my trailer frame? I went over the entire frame with a wire wheel but only ground to bare metal where necessary to remove rust.

Asked by: Jack
Its possible this could harm the existing products down. We would have no way of knowing without knowing what type of existing finish/products were down. be sure to test a small area first.

Do you use this before you paint a dash 

Asked by: Quance
If this is a metal dash this would be fine. If applying paint to a plastic dash then a safer cleaner needs to be used such as this: https://www.eastwood.com/sem-xxx-universal-surface-cleaner.html
