          Zinc Chromate is the way to go, some of the stuff at the marine stores is Zinc phosphate . . . not as good.

            Thx. In that kit I bought, there is an etching liquid called Power Blast. Would it be a good idea to use that before the Zinc Chromate?

              It is a Zinc phosphate etcher/cleaner.

                I prefer alumiprep

                However If you just blasted the case, scuff with scotchbrite, wipe with acetone, then once that flashes, spray the etching primer.

                  Hey Scott, I noticed, on another thread, that you said bare aluminum has to be primed with in hours of being stripped. I have been stripping mine a bit at a time over the last week and intend on painting it this weekend. There is a chance I may not get to it , though. Does it harm the aluminum to leave it bare, or do I just need to light sand the whole thing and clean it before I paint. The lower is done and turned out quite nice. Just hope the paint stays on.

                            This is how it started out!

                              Nice job!

                              Scott,
                              “primer surfacer/sealant (either spray on or brush on) - this will seal the zinc primer and make a good base for top coat”

                              is this intermediate coat necessary and, if so, is there one you recommend?

                                Finally got that thing stripped. What a pain. Sand the whole thing and wipe with acetone then paint.

                                Tomorrow. Had enough for today!
