thats horrible advice. whatever you paint, always prep. "special" paint or not, paint bonds to clean surfaces. if dirt and residue are there it can peel or cause imperfections.
I just did my front end flares last night. Cleaned with degreaser, lightly sanded, cleaned again, then wiped down with paint thinner (2x) to remove anything else. Came out fantastic. Will post pics soon
