    Default What to use/do to prep textured paint surface for a new coat (no sandpaper).

    Thought about asking here before I do something not so great. How can I etch a textured paint finish?
    The following paint coat of Imron will follow the texture if the spray coat is light and of the same color.

    Ceiling in your house ?
    Outside on your siding ?
    On a machinery cabinet ?
    On your car ?

    Probably by using a somewhat caustic detergent followed by a good rinse. As I recall, ZEP Purple will etch aluminum so something like that diluted down so it won't be overaggressive.

    I would definitely spot test first.

    The original paint is on a rolling cart/cabinet that has steel and aluminium pieces.

    I remember a guy in BP section that he holds his breath. He also had painting experience with air hoods.

    I bet I can hold my breath for a long time too...
