  • I swear by After Blast. It disolves the rust and leaves a zinc coating which keeps the parts from rusting. If you have flash rust, it will make it disappear in seconds. For smaller parts, I'll dip them in a vinegar vat first for a say or two, then treat with After Blast.

  • Dear Guy's while I am a long time eastwoods "Retail" customer I'm also a life long car builder So I have to tell you that yes this product work's . BUT to Rag down a newly blasted frame is crazy . NO MATTER how many time's I've tried this following your instruction's to the letter The time I spent cleaning up after your after blast clean up was just ridiculous say nothing of the lent left behind or the bit's of rag's torn off by the factory weld's made my whole after blast experience A NIGHTMARE

  • Most paint/primer manufacturers won't warranty their product if metal is prepped this way. I have done numerous restorations and although you might think I'm crazy, hot water and blow dry is your only problem free solution. No matter what the surface is, we always use a waterborne wax and grease remover (mixture of rubbing alcohol and acetone). Before spray applying any paint or primer. Acid under primer is just a bad idea all around. Most good 2pk epoxy primers contain zinc anyways

  • Any flash rust caused by the hot water not evaporating quickly enough can be knocked down with a Brillo pad, and the dust left behind from this process is wiped away with said wax/grease remover. I've been doing cars this way for 20 plus years and never had an unhappy customer

  • @jordan. Some areas it is better to not touch with a rag… Like this frame shown in video… Air blast dry, and epoxy prime is sufficient. But when you're talking about body panels, it's a little different as you want them surgically clean. Even compressed air will not remove %100 of foreign contaminants. Especially when blasted with common sand. Lots of dust left behind that MUST be dealt with
