    I don't know of any chain stores that carry this stuff. I got mine from columbia coatings. EW does not carry any that I know of. The stuff I use is a phosphate coating not really a cleaner to me, I just spray it down then dip it into hot water as directed.

    Home depot sells a product called Jasco Prep and Primer. It is an iron phosphate cleaner. It's about $7 for a quart.

    We use picklex 20 Its very popular with the folks over at the autobodystore.com. If you do a google search there will be lots of talk about it on the various metal work forums.

    I had been using DuPont 5717, but I found PPG's phosphating chemicals are easier and cheaper than DuPonts stuff.
    Eastwood does sell a phosphating cleaner and it's called Oxi-solve, it also works well.

    Aluminum doesn't require phosphating as much as it requires oxide removal and control (prevent it from reforming, which it does immediatly upon contact with oxygen) a fluoridation treatment is needed for that.
    Car Quest sells an aluminum cleaner called TP-725, a hydrofluoric acid, it's cheap and it work good.

    Wash it with TP-725 after blasting, outgas, then coat and bake.

    Around here Carquest also has automotive paint specialty stores, that's where I get mine, other than that, anyplace in your area that sells PPG paints.
