View Full Version : Eastwood Paint

Just an FYI, I purchased Eastwood's Extreme Chassis Black paint to shoot the frame of my 63 Cruiser. Before I used this paint in my gun I wanted to know what to use for cleaning up the spray gun. Nowhere does it say on the can or their website what to use. I ended up talking to one of their tech support guys, and he told me it's just simple paint thinner! I thought I'd post this in case anyone else needs the info.

I use laquer thinner. "paint thinner" can be a lot of different things,mostly water. I once tried to use an old can of 'paint thinner' to clean some urethane out of a gun,it wouldn't do a thing.

If you want a real aggressive solvent for cleaning your spray gun, go to Lowes, Home Depot, etc, and buy a can of MEK. It is probably the most aggressive solvent available.
