Outstanding! I have heard it being done, but never seen the process. I wouldnt have the patience, I would have bough the rails and used your outstanding talent on the body that you were doubting the condition of. Again, hats of to ya.

This would have been great even if you bought the steel, but somehow it's made even sweeter by the fact that it's all built out of dumpster scraps. I'd really like to know what you do for a living.
dumpster diving the ultimate hybrid build

Another 15 minutes with a 120 grit belt on the string buff and done.

The 80 gritt square pad in the other pic is something I use for inside joints like the reveal area. Its an old school thing that seems to baffle alot of guys. Very effective but needs a little practice to master.

This grinder wasn't designed to do any of this stuff. This and most other angle grinders will turn at 11,000 RPMs which is way too fast for these things. BUT with the variable speed control it all works great.

Lastly, if your gonna try any of this stuff, put on a face shield and respirator. When this shit flies apart in your face, its gonna leave a mark!
Does anyone know if a router speed controller like the one pictured would be adequate to reduce the speed of a cheap, non-variable speed grinder to effectively achieve what you do with that killer Milwaukee?

Thanks,
Steve
