I make my tack rags by spraying a white towel with W&G remover that works for me..once you are happy then shoot it..no more sanding unless the dust bunnies bite ya..

Sam, do you ever worry about it penetrating the primer? I was told not to do it because of that but obviously when you're sanding just blowing it off doesn't get it all off, and you can tell when you feel it with your hand after. I personally would love to do that but was told otherwise, but maybe it was just bad information. Sounds like you're not soaking it by spraying it on either.

Actually not as I put the W&G remover in a spray bottle and spray the towel and then wipe..using a good vacuum to get the dust up helps as well..gotta be clean when painting..

If one was to spray directly on the panel then there may be an issue..

I thought he was re-priming but I guess that makes sense anyways being that you're gonna grease and wax before paint and it will be on primer as well.

I think before Base Coat you wash with soap and water only.

Maybe if you're using dawn but you surely have to grease and wax before paint, or that was what i was taught anyways.

for primer you can get away with some contaminants but not with paint. Not worth trying.

W&G between primer coats and always before paint..
Just dry wiping might be ok if it just a spot repair because you wont have your hands all over the car ,anywhere your hands touch must be cleaned.
when sanding a whole car your hands will be all over it,sweat and oils will be on the surface and must be cleaned before anything else is sprayed on dry wiping wont do it.theres also oils from your air tools that you might not see there too.using a W&G remover is nessarry before priming in between priming and after priming...any time you spray anything ,clean with W&G first ...

Of coarse not...only after your first application of primer is all sanded and just before you reprime,its to remove any oils your hands left behind,sweat drops etc...even oils blowing out of your air tools that you cant see...

heres something I found out recently....dont buy W&G from your auto parts store...I ran out of mine and ran to O'riely's and bought a Qt. of duplicolor W&G remover and that stuff is the worst crap I've ever seen it takes forever to evaporate and dont work worth a crap. I threw the whole can in the garbage...
