Hit it with scotch brite and degrease it with brake cleaner. Don't touch it again with bare hands before spraying.

I’ve seen a guy at worth take a torch over metal before painting as well. Can’t tell until he runs the torch over my but there can be a lot of moisture in metal.

yeah i cleaned it with thinner but didnt hit it with abrasive. i did use rubber gloves though. gonna try that and maybe heat it up with a torch. the torch will harden it a little any way and may be better for the seat straps on this garden bench ive been rebuilding.

After wiping down with lacquer thinner, wipe it down with white vinegar. Let dry and paint it.
