    hey! a question on prepping a aluminum fuel cell i just bought for my truck. i went with the natural aluminum rather than paying $50 extra for powdercoat. i plan on using od green rattle can just like the cab. question is to make the paint stick proper. i have some aluminum etching cleaner, should i use that? then etching primer. or can i se the etch/cleaner then a good primer then paint? thanks:D
