Not really a tool, but has anyone used Jasco's Prep & Prime on any resto project they've done? I've heard of people using it, but can't find very much info on it on the web.
Did is work OK?
Do you swear by it?

Here's a link, bottom of the page:

Like many other metal prep products, it chemically converts rust from iron oxide to iron phosphate (yes, this is the same phosphate that many auto manufactures used to coat metal parts with in the first place to 'rust proof' them. Also used was zinc (galvanized) and cadmium plate).
I just wanted to know if anyone had preferences to this one over another brand.

I use Picklex 20 for the same thing and really like it.

The green bottle is Ospho. I pay about 8.50 for a qt. Use a 409 type sprayer that attaches to the bottle. The Ospho is good stuff. It is phosphoric acid. Requires an overnite cure. can be sanded and left on bare metal surface. Etch primers have phosphoric acid in them. It's a good way to safeguard bare metal prior to painting. Bondo fillers and epoxy DO NOT like Ospho-wont stick. Ospho should be kept off bare bondo and pot metal. If treated metal should need filler, the Ospho can be washed off with baking soda and water along with mild steel wool.
