    Yep, just a light petroleum solvent. Naptha, mineral spirits, varsol, stoddard, etc... are all in the same family.

    I'm not Sam but I'll chime in. The acid etch process is for aluminum that is going to be painted and is done prior (immediately prior) to priming. It isn't needed for aluminum that is covered by fabric.
