flash rust

yes, i have the same problem and there is nothing you can do about it. I asked this question of the tutor and he suggested that the steel is allowed to dry naturally in the sun or by heat lamp don't blow it off with compressed air as there may be minute oil particules in it, he also suggested washing it with the Metal Prep more than once but i still get the flash rust after following these suggestions; it doesn't seem to be a problem as most etch primers have an oxide in them to counteract this.
