endust

getting ready to reprime epoxy and top coat b/c. Are some of you still using the endust trick instead of final tack?

I am sorry, there is no friggin way I am going to spray a household product on my car before I paint, NO WAY.

Like I aways say, if that were to be the best way to do it the paint companies would have a product just like it, PERIOD.

Um, have I mentioned lately READ THE TECH SHEETS!

Use tack rags gently before and between coats when the surface is dry. They're cheap and won't put unnecessary crap in the finish. Don't forget to tack off your masking paper too.

I wouldnt tack rag metallic base coat though. I did that once and it took the metallic flakes out and left the base tiger striped. It was a hard lesson to learn, but a lesson learned well.

tiger stripes are from spraying, not tacking . tack every coat of base. just use the rag the right way. dont rub hard and be sure to unfold it all the way the bundle it into a loose ball.

jc clarke has been using endust on a rag for years. dont know how but he does.

Exactly I've tacked metallic base for a lot of years now, and never had it cause striping. Stripping is an application problem.
But there is a correct way to use a tac rag, like shine already mentioned. It should be unfolded and then made into a fluffy ball in your hand. Don't use pressure when tacking off, too much and you can transfer the sticky stuff from the rag to the paint, your just picking up dust and dirt specs that may have landed on the surface. Turn the rag often and if it gets too dirty chuck it and grab a new one, they are cheap.

Don't understand why people want to take a risk and shop at the hardware store for materials, instead of the paint store and products made for car painting. Hmm down this isle for some toilet bowl cleaner, now lets head over and get some furniture polish. Don't get me wrong, I stop at the farm and fleet down the road when I need stuff in a pinch, but thats only certain stuff. They carry good 3day 3m masking tape, If I forgot to make sure the paint jobber threw in sticks and strainers, and yes I'll usually pick up a tac rag there.

I use Endust because it works better for me than a tack rag,
that's all.

I've read in the past about your using Endust - thats why I asked. Didn't know if any problems surfaced after time with it. Guess I'll just stay with the tried and true tack rag. I didnt know about making a ball out of it - another helpful tip that I thank you for. Tomorrow's the big day - will spend a little extra time praying tonight.

The main ingredient in Endust is Paraffinic oil, the same stuff used in many tack cloths.
Apparently the 1-5 % orange oil in Endust doesn't cause JCC a problem.
I have never tried it to have an opinion based on experience.

Its "claim to fame" is that it leaves "no residue"
Woodworkers use it a lot for getting the dust out of wood pores.
It also removes the static, which helps a lot,
especially on plastic parts.
Just don't confuse it with Pledge, that would be a nightmare
