I need to touch up a few spots on my mast that was painted with this paint.
What is the recommended product for cleaning the area before sanding and also to remove sanding residue before priming?
Thanks for any help

G....I completely stripped, primed and paint a CD mast using a 2 part system. I've long hit the erase button on that one but I can tell you that if you don't follow the directions exactly the job is doomed to failure. 1st hand knowledge!

Point is, different paint manufactures have their own cleaners, primers, thinners and paints and should not be intermingled with others. So I guess you should first find the type of paint and the system you want to use and then follow their directions to the letter. If you need additional help, your chosen manufacturer usually will have a hotline and are happy to field consumer questions. Good luck with the project.

Cheers Bob - yeah I've been bitten before by thinking that I could shortcut the 2 part paint process
