    004.JPG 006.JPG I bought one a while back haven't used it much yet. I did try it on one of my fenders and was pleased with the result

    Some folks like myself don’t like using course grits like that to clean metal.
    This is why I’m curious if this tool works close to how it’s advertised.

    19-gauge, worse, 18-gauge, and even worse 20-gauge (like on an early Falcon), gets really thin when you go at it with 36.

    I won't use anything lower than 80 to clean metal. I have more than enough time to move around to prevent warping, than I have time to repair metal damaged I caused.

  4. I have purchased an ot 70 f100 that had good factory paint the po filled all of the body seams with bondo then primer and ss paint. He didn't know what he was doing, he painted it in a car port and it rained soon after so it's a mess but it's a solid truck with no rust so worth saving. I normally use a da and 80 grit then 120 grit. A friend was telling about using the contour sct and how he stripped a truck box in three hours and 1 and 1/2 of the 49.00 stripping drums. I dont mind spending the money to save the time but I'm not sure I would be saving the time with this tool. Thanks for all of the great feedback guys.
    Beaner looks like the da may win this one.

    Much cheaper and does a great job, Painteater made by Wagner (around $13-15 at most hardware stores or Menards). It's a fiber wheel that screws onto your 4.5" angle grinder. Just screw it on by hand and when it stops threading you are ready to go, no reason to force it to go further. The purple ones are the best but they have been replaced by the black ones.

    They remove paint quickly and work great on surface rust. Took 1 pad to do the box side on my unibody (took about 30 minutes to remove original paint, 2 coats of primer and a newer paint job) and to clean up a bunch of small stuff. Did both inner fenders with one pad. Took another pad to do both doors and about half the roof skin.

    Work great and leave a nice tooth for primer or putty work.

    That Wagner Paint Eater pad is rated for 3000 rpm. How fast is your grinder spinning?

    147mph. That is how fast the pieces will be going, if they come off.
     
  9. I looked at that product on amazon it was specif for there tool as I was reading and looking the next one down was a 3M product that was rated for a 4.5 angle grinder. I have a slower speed buffer that has the same head thread as an angle grinder so I have ordered one of each to do a comparison as I strip the truck.
    Thanks LM14 for the tip, I wasn't too happy at the prospect of spending close to 500 dollars to strip the truck myself. I could get it blasted for that much money.
    We will see what happens guys!
