My 30 years of experience using it has shown that the self etching properties work very well if the surface is cleaned well before spraying.

I do pre-scuff with scotchbrite in areas that will have high abrasion (cockpit, etc.). Scotchbrite prep is not a problem. It scuffs no where near the roughness that blasting does.

Some other discussion in the recent thread....

Talking Thanks!

I just wanted to give a quick thanks to all the folks contributing to this thread. I was struggling to find the motivation to do some priming work over the past couple of weeks. Reading through this thread gave me several new ideas and the kick in the pants I needed. Last night I primed three fuselage skins, and I am hoping to get some more work done tomorrow (WX permitting).

I found some Bon Ami at my local hardware store (Do It Best). I prepped as described above (gray Scoth-Brite/Bon Ami) and I think this is some of my best priming to date. I'm even kind of looking forward to painting the interior.

Thanks again!
