Another great "tool", Norton Rapid Strip

Found these from a member on another board. They are great for taking paint off, as well as light rust and dirt. I found they work best when you use a wire wheel real quick to get anything loose and the larger stuff off then go over and finish with one of these. Im cleaning my frame since I have the body off. They have a standard 5/8" arbor. So they fit on just about every 4.5" grinder.

where did you find that at? looks like it would work well in several situations. I just bought a few wire wheels for taking off the powder coat on my cragers. These may have worked better.

Home Depot carries Norton Products. Thats where I get mine from.

I grabbed a comparison picture between just a wire wheel and wire wheel then rapid strip.

The left side is just a wire wheel. The right side is the same amount of time with a wire wheel then about a minute of using the rapid strip disk.

Por15 all the way!!! Do it right, and you wont have to worry about it - after you por15, let it set for a few days - clean it with a powerwasher, wait till dry, and undercoat it with some of the nappa rubberized spray - keeps that salt away!
