    I was thinking about sanding down my old tractor parts this winter and painting them in the summer since it will be too cold to shoot paint. One problem tho is that bare metal is prone to rust.

    If I put a coat of Fluid Film over the parts will that make it impossible to paint in the spring? Like create bubbling or make it so the paint won't stick? I'm kinda picky on this since I'm using high dollar DuPont automotive paint. Thanks.:salute:

    You are just going to want to remove the Fluid Film before painting. A mild solvent like mineral spirits, or a good biodegradable cleaner will take it right off. Otherwise, you are right, the paint won't stick.

    Thanks Dano

    I wasn't sure if mineral spirits would remove the fluid film completely but it sounds like it'll work just fine. :salute:
