So i have gotten the truck down to just the cab remaining on the frame. while i wait for the $$ for floor pans and rocker panels i've started the rust repair on the back half of the frame. My buddy i work with used rustoleum rusty metal primer on his rock crawler frame and top-coated with rustoleum satin black and it came out pretty good. So far i have been using wire wheels, flap wheels and sand paper to bust most of the rust, but for the tricky spots i was thinking of using loctite naval jelly rust desolver. Now the bottle says wash off with water, and the primer says wash areas first with soapy water. My question is, my buddy said he prepped his frame with mineral spirits prior to applying the primer. Does anyone have advice on if a soapy wash will do, or will a wash and than mineral spirit wipe hurt me down the road??
