Repainting painted Alum.

I have not painted over painted aluminum panels before and just idiot checking myself before shooting.
I've gray scotch brite scuffed,spray can (U-Poll) etching primer the scratches and blocked.
I believe it should be OK to shoot bc/cc but wasn't sure if an adhesion promoter would necessary.
Thanks.Mike.

Guess I must have scared everyone with this one.LOL..

That or it's a "no brainer" and I'm just being to cautious.
(Which I'm sure is the case.) Just never painted over the like's of it and would hate to waste a nice job.

Seem's cool to shoot as planned. This is enamel paint coated as far as I know not bare alum.

Well, if its got paint on it, treat it just like any other painted product, sand and shoot.

Adhesion promoter will do nothing but waste money.

I did, and it went fine except the plastic nose piece which apparently was Krylon'd and had a few wrinkles come up.

Got some pigment spotting (I guess that's what you call it,tiny dot's of the dark color).
This Nason base sure is some great paint.

I think the "kink" here is that it is ALREADY painted. No adhesion promotor is needed because you can simply sand the paint just like any other paint.

The paint doesn't "know" if it is on aluminum, steel, or fiberglass. Just sand it and paint it.
