One of the large projects many home hobbyists tackle is stripping paint. Paint can be stripped by mechanical methods (sanding), chemicals, or media blasting. Removing paint allows you to see what is hiding beneath the skin, and my general rule is that if the paint is not original and not in sound shape, I strip the vehicle to bare metal.
Throughout my various
projects, I've used chemical paint removers, media blasting, and sanding
with my angle grinder. My preference for removing paint on large panels
Cleaning and Stripping Disc System. This system allows you to quickly
remove multiple layers of paint and clean off rust. The cleaning disc
is more aggressive and leaves an 80-grit finish on metal, while the
stripping disc leaves a less-aggressive 320-grit finish.
