i use a propane torch quite often to heat up parts that im going to TIG. especially when im welding thick to thin or a old part when welding a new part to it like a replacement tab for a nerf bar or something like that.


Another good cleaner for aluminum is aluminum brite an acid based cleaner.

Acetone or thinner is great for wiping down for oils where as aluminum brite will strip paints as well as clean it.

The stripper also recommends acetone for washing parts after stripping. I use lacquer wash as it is cheap and does the same thing.

The good plastic paint is a 3 step process with a flexing agent. I noticed there was a gallon of clean strip that came with a spray bottle. That would work instead of using the rattle can.
