Duracoat question

Anyone who has used this:

I am ready to apply, but I have used non-chlorinated brake cleaner and a final cleaning with ACETONE to prep the metal. I notice that DURACOAT 'recommends' using their proprietary preps to degrease.

Is my final use of Acetone good enough, or do I have to order their stuff?

(I called them and they said that I 'should' be OK - but has enyone out their used "other than" their stuff?)

I am painting a Century M70.

hi,

acetone and non clorinated brake parts cleaner could leave a film that the duracoat will not stick to. i would use electrical contact cleaner to degrease and clean the parts. contact cleaner leaves no residue. i suppose if you just finish off with the contact cleaner you will be fine. the main thing is leavingt no oils and any other substances behind before spraying the duracoat.
