Rust Removal

I got my '30 Model A that I'm trying to prepare for paint. So far it's been a combination of a Zip wheel, Scotchbrite discs, and a cheap siphon feed sandblaster (shooting at about 100PSI so it's doing quite well).
I don't want to warp it or make it too thin so I'm using a Sill #1 sand. I noticed that on some parts there is a black coating that I think is the zinc oxide cause the paint is coming off pretty easily in comparison.
My question is do I have to completely get that off before I start with my fibre filler and Proform self etching primer. I also have Dominion sure seal primer/surfacer if that matters.
I'm trying to go for a good quality paint job but I don't want to wreck the sheetmetal in doing so.

Thanks a lot,
Sean

on lightly rusted areas try using navel jelly. It works great. It's available at Home Hardware but they may not know they sell it at your local store. If you need a Home Hardware part# pm me and I'll get it for you.

I second the naval jelly recommendation. I work it in using steel wool. A couple of applications may be necessary. Treat the metal with a phosphate coating like step prep or metal prep once you get it clean. I would also strongly recommend washing the panel down well to get all trace of the acid off before applying any surface coating but that goes without saying.
