what is up with the new paints these days? i keep coming across frame type paints that let rust seep in and then peel off in sheets.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

    In response to bobb

what are you trying to paint? some frames were wax dipped after paint during manufacturing to prevent corrosion. if your removal method generates heat it will allow wax to permeate the surface of the metal in tiny scratches caused or left behind by your removal method. or your prep doesnt remove all trace of wax, it will peel eventually.
