i am not a fan of washing the bus with soap and water prior to painting.
i like to clean the bus with heavy duty paper towels and mineral spirits (kerosene would probably be ok too) but evertime i've panted a bus after washing with soap and water i end up with the same problem: Water trapped under the rub rails that drips out when you're painting. The water gets forced out by the air from the spray gun. I've even washed my bus 2 days prior to painting, i even used compressed air to try and remove the water, but no matter what i do, i still have the problem.
perhaps if you live out west in a hot dry climate you won't have this problem, but here in michigan water under the rub rails is not your friend.
anybody else have this problem? or is it just me?
