Since I had this all off for the drive idler replacement, though I would make it look better!

I used the Magic Kubota Orange from TSC for this. If you use that paint, DO NOT use lacquer thinner to clean for paint. This stuff will fish-eye every time!

Kenny I thought lacquer thinner was a good pre paint cleaner because it evaporates completely ?

It is! But this Magic paint does not like it! I did the foot rest last over primer and no sanding/cleaning and it came out great. The other parts got sanded and a wipe down with lacquer thinner and fish eyed!

There is a cleaner to use so fish eye won't happen. It's for oils and silicone remover. We used it on my sons rambler we painted two weeks ago and on my trailer that I painted yesterday. Noel

Wax and grease remover is the preferred pre paint cleaner. Several different names for it.
Nice job on the parts Kenny.

We used to use Mineral spirits for wiping down and had good results.

One of the things they say is to  "clean before sanding " so you don't sand the oil wax ect into the surface

Absolutely, clean before sanding! Also there are fish eye preventives that are available commercially, but in a bind 2-3 drops of clean motor oil added to the mixed paint will do the job. All you're trying to do is get the same properties as the impurity that remains on the surface after cleaning. I learned this in my body shop days many years ago.

This is spray can paint. I just won't use lacquer thinner to clean with this paint. I'll see about some of the other products for cleaning. If nothing else, I'll wash with Purple Power and rinse well, let it dry.
