For those of you using AKZO:
I'm keeping away from alodine with my build and am considering using AKZO.
For AKZO, do I have to acid etch, or can I just scuff parts with scotchbright, clean, and spray the AKZO?
If I do have to acid etch, what are the options? Can I use something like Stewart EkoEtch, or must I stick with Alumiprep? Any other good options?
