Guess Ive been lucking, In the 10 years Ive been in the refinishing business Ive never had a contamination issue. I wash the car with soap and water then wipe it good with grease and wax remover before starting any work to keep the sandpaper from grinding anything into the paint. Then wipe it down between ever step, That means before filler work, before primer, before sealer, before paint.
