flappying ginding wheel or a wire brush drill attachement.

Prob less damage to be done with the wire brush attachments, and easier to get into noocks and cranies

See I knew it would be worth asking before I started, was going to use a grinding wheel but thought it would be a bit drastic.

Thank you Adam

I'd go for a flapper disc as you'll be less likely to gouge.

a flapper disc will gouge/grind more than a wire brush!

I used them when I was a fabricator and never gouged in to the steel, as long as you hold them flat on to the material what you take off is dependant on how hard you press.

smoothing is best done with flapper wheel, but just watch you dont cut into shit thin nova metal. Why on earth are you smoothing and bare metaling your chassis legs?

Removing paint and smoothing some seam sealer down, thats what I'm doing and this can be down with a wire brush attachment.

Love you
