Do I need to sand phosphoric acid?

I have a 1972 Ford F100 that I am repainting. I have removed the radiator support to do some work on and am going to paint it. I put some phosphoric acid on it so that it wouldn't rust until I go to it. Do I need to sand it or can I just prime and paint right over it.

Thanks,
Bob

Take a stainless steel brillo pad and go over it with that to remove as much a possible. Then wipe it down with some sort of solvent. The cleaner the part is the better.

I've found a brillo pad with detergent and a clear water rinse followed by primer works best after phosphate

I just wipe it several times with wash thinner.
