I placed an order from Eastwood yesterday. Arriving soon...
  • Pre Painting Prep Aerosol
  • Diamond Clear Satin/Metal Surfaces Aerosol
  • Rust Encapsulator Black Aerosol
  • Aluma Blast Paint Aerosol
  • Extreme Chassis BlackSatin 14 oz Aerosol
  • Underhood Black Semi Gloss Aerosol

I already have all the POR-15 prep products on-hand (Marine Clean, Metal-Ready, etc.), but thought I'd also give the Eastwood Pre cleaner a try. The water-based POR-15 Marine Clean does an OK job, but is not alone adequate to completely degrease parts, in my experience. I have typically followed the Marine Clean with a couple wipe-downs of acetone, whcih typically picks up additional dirt/grime. I'm hoping the Pre will work better.

For metal converters, I did not buy the Eastwood Rust Dissolver yet, but may give it a shot down the road. I already have on-hand, and have used in the past, both POR-15 Metal-Ready and Naval Jelly. Both work well, and basically use phosphoric acid to convert & neutralize the rust.

I also held off on ordering the Eastwood ceramic engine paint, as we won't be ready for that until mid-to-late summer, I'm guessing.

We'll do a product review of each of the Eastwood products after we use them.
