Dilution of paint prep

Recommended Posts

Can paint prep be diluted with water? I only have a number of ounces left in a spray bottle and trying to make it last for an entire vehicle.

You can dilute Paint Prep, just understand you are reducing it's effectiveness. 

Ron, if I'm claying and then hyper polishing the car, then following up with a damp towel of ONR to remove the polish residue, is paint prep still necessary?

The direction on gloss coat also mention around 15% IPA.  So if you run out of paint prep you can use that.  Or hold off and get more paint prep.

A Paint Prep or IPA wipe down is extra insurance that you've removed all residue.  If you use  Hyper Polish, a micro fiber dampened in even diluted Paint Prep should be sufficient for a strong coating bond.
