Removing Etching Primer
 
Is there a chemical out there a guy can use to remove this stuff?... Don't really want to grind it off...

Paint stripper will do it..Tip is to lay plastic sheeting over what you have applied to keep the stripper moist and let it work for you..

Is there a cheaper way than using paint stripper? Like thinner?

OneMoreTime 02-27-2013 02:55 AM

I am not aware of anything cheap and easy about doing this..If it is easy it is not cheap and if it is cheap it is not easy..

swvalcon has a good point...if it's an A & B type etching primer it will either wash off with thinner or it can be sanded off...so if you know what kind it its, that would help. Did you apply the Etch primer or was it on the car when you got it?

Try some acetone on a rag.

Or if you give it a dirty look it'll probably fall off. Mike is right, it'll wash off with thinner...good call to take it off...what are you putting on in it's place.

I'm going to re-spray it in Epoxy

Good call, the rattle can etch does have it's place, (small burn through's etc.) but not on large surfaces and overall protection as a full blown project like yours.

Good luck James.
