Ok,I stripped off my paint to the bare metal under hood and outside of aprons then washed down with marine clean and then treated the metal w/ metal ready all as directed.I washed off the marine clean w/ the garden hose & also the metal ready after keeping the metal wet with it for 1/2 hour. It's suppose to be ready for por 15 now but the metal has a lot of flash rust & is very streaky. I want to rub it down w/ lacquer thinner now before painting. Does anyone know if I'll lose the protective coating from the metal ready if I do this? Thanks.
