I poured EZ Speed Strip into a metal coffee can (don’t use plastic) and brushed on a thick, gloppy coating. It adhered well to the underside of the tabs; although, I did put scrap cardboard down to catch the inevitable drips. It began bubbling the three coats of antifouling paint in about 15 minutes, and after an hour, I scraped off the mess into another old metal can. A quick wipe with thinner, and my tabs were clean and bright, except for a few spots in the corners where the sides bend upward. A second application took care of that.
