27 USED PARTS PD-1130 Caution: Wear the proper safety protection when sanding, cleaning, mixing and spraying all materials included within this process. 27 For prepping used parts, the industry's best practice is to completely remove existing finishes to ensure a clean, rust-free substrate. 1 Wash part with hot water and soap. Rinse and dry completely. Clean entire part with the appropriate PPG cleaner, using clean towels to remove contaminants. Dry thoroughly. 2 Inspect part for imperfections and damage. Determine what repairs should be made, if any. Follow all process documents for making repairs to the part. 3 For directions on the best process to remove existing finishes, refer to Removing Paint on the next two pages (28-29). 4 Once existing finish has been removed, repeat cleaning the entire part thoroughly with the appropriate PPG cleaner, using clean towels. Dry completely. Tack off the dry part. 5 Apply 1-2 coats of epoxy primer to the entire part. 6 Proceed to body work. Refer to the Body Filler Process, PD-1180.
