MEK substitute for Urethane?

My local ACE doesn't sell MEK any more. Anyone know if MEK-substitute is good for prepping urethane to patch? Thanks.

Try your locol paint store such as Sherwin Williams or Kwal. They should have it because it is a thinner for epoxy paint.

Not necessarily. Epoxy thinner and mek can be very different. You're right about checking out the local paint stores. Sounds like the mek replacement might work fine too.
