i have actually seen someone use the powder and a scothbrite to clean a car before a repaint but that was before primer. he said it was to help clean old wax oil and grease that was on the old paint. then again the guy was a douche bag so i guess that should have told me something.

The old painter @ my work used to prep new plastic bumpers with ajax and a grey scotchbrite pad,guess it scuffed up good,but to me,too much mess and clean up.

im always having that argument with painters about preping new bumpers with a scotch pad. ive never done it, and ive literally painted thousands of new bumper covers without once having scotch brited them. never had one flake off yet. just use a plastic cleaning solution then plastic prime, top coat bombs away
