Question Oil on Paint

I had my car in Urathane primer almost ready to paint, I started it to move it and blew the line on the trans cooler, resulting on trans fluid all over the front valance. How do I clean it to make sure the is no oil left on the surface before I paint?

I would think taking some thinner on a rag and wiping it off would be enough.

A couple of good washings w/ lacquer thinner then a coat of epoxy sealer should do the trick. Also sand AO w/ 320 grit before the sealer.

Use NO!!! lacquer thinner! It will smear the friction modifiers (depending on brand and type) in the trans fluid and you will have a mess.

Take rubbing alcohol 50%
Tap Water 50%
Now add 10% ammonia.
wash twice and dry with clean rag each time.

Let dry about 10 minutes and hand scuff with 320 and apply one
coat of primer over just to make sure you got it all out. If primer
goes on smooth you've got it whipped!

Another issue I just thought of, Did this happen in a closed up garage? If outside no problem in a small garage trans fluid is the worse fish-eye causer of anything, you may need to wash the whole car with the above mix if it was. Make sure you use and keep the rags clean while cleaning maybe get a roll of heavy duty paper towels.
Also all trans fluid on the floor must be delt with before anything is done.

Hey J6stang23,

Just for future reference, lacquer thinner and urethane reducers are very poor cleaners, in short due to broad a range of chemical makeup in them and that varies greatly. Using certain ones on bare metal or aluminum can be a recipe for disaster.

New raw bumpers such as TPO or TEO or POLYETHYLENE or ABS cleaning with one of these products will guarantee paint to come off down the road and a lot of times before it leaves the shop.

Wax and grease remover (solvent type) is a good all around cleaner as its mild and fast dry. Except for TPO and TEO.

For tough items such a silicone, oils, diesel fuel and TPO and TEO an alcohol based waterborne is a lot stronger and will clean more contaminates. Most painters hate waterborne cleaners because they won't take off glue from strips or emblems and are a little slower to dry.
Hope this helps.

Bummer. I have been using lacquer thinner as my pre-paint wash-down for 20 years. Not aware of any paint problems resulting from it so far. Maybe my brand is a good one with no bad stuff in it!

Hey guy,
A lot of people have! 9 times out of 10 you may not have a problem, its that 1 out of 10 that will drive you to drinking!

Todays lacquer thinners are nothing like they use to be as most lacquer thinners (cheap ones) are being made as cheap as possible because they are only being used for gun cleaning.
Almost all these gun wash thinners cannot be used for thinning lacquer. A further problem, as an engineer you know this is
reducers are formulated on a ladder scale with solvents so when used as a cleaner they fight themselves and negate the cleaning effect.
When a problem does show up it usually does so in the last coat of single stage or last coat of clear so no one thinks about problem starting at the beginning of job.
Whenever I get a call on a problem thats makes no sense why the problem happened, thats my first question! What was used for cleaning? Bingo!
