Don't know about zip strip. I use Rustoleum Aircraft finish remover. Most paint strippers have methylene cloride, methanol, ethanol, mineral spirits and some kind of wax or parrafin. The wax makes a skin so the solvents don't evaporate right away. Holds the fumes so the solvents eat the paint. You can wash it with soap and water but unless you solvent wipe it immediately with alcohol surface rust will start. Without a soap and water wash, once you wipe the paint off, the solvents usually evaporate in a short time. You have to get the wax off. I have used Rustoleum wax and tar remover but I guess any kind of prepsol type solvent that removes wax can be used to clean before priming/painting.

Try not using this so much...makes for much easier reading!


I'd thoroughly wipe it down with DuPont Prep-Sol (or equivalent), then quickly get some epoxy primer on the bare metal before it has a chance to flash rust.

I always use laquer thinner before applying paint. This is what I used in the industry when we used to paint metal laboratory doors and never had one failure.
