Response from PPG

Thanks DEADBODYMAN. Did you used to be a Live Body Man?

Here is a response from PPG. They also attached a PDF for the DX Treatments which I could post if any one is interested.

Dear Sir:

Thank you for your interest in PPG Refinish products. Based on the information you provided we would recommend our DX Metal Treatments. If after treating the metal with our DX579 and DX520 you still have rust, you will need new metal. You cannot prime over rusted areas, if you do blistering may occur.

We do not recommend crossing product lines therefore we do recommend you use one system such as Deltron throughout the entire process. Attached is the technical data sheet for the DX metal treatments.

If further assistance is required, please contact us at the Technical Service number listed below or visit us online at PPG Automotive Refinish.

We have established an automated faxing system that allows you to fax yourself product bulletins and MSDS 24 hours a day. The PPG FaxBack number is 800.647.6050 If you order document number 24747 from our FaxBack system, this document provides the instructions on how to use the system and the indexes that are available.
