We gently use a rotary wire brush in an angle grinder. Any pitted areas are then locally grit blasted before etch and prime.

You're doing a great job keep it up!

maybe slow, but methodical & diligent, which is the better route for sure John. Thanks for sharing the progress with pics.
Just lovin' that Talia is getting this attention from you. It's like she was ailing a bit & you're breathing life back into her,... and of course there's someone smiling at you from above the entire time.

Same applies really.
Try the twisted wire wheel, but do be careful and use leather gloves with stout overalls and a full face mask.

The other item we use is a Roloc air-powered mini-disc sander which comes with various attachments including grinding/sanding and scotchbrite pads that quickly screw on the face.

Sounds scary sticking that wheel on a angle grinder 😬 and putting it in a tail light housing. I appreciate your advice though more importantly though your encouragement and positive comment

John,
What type of etching primer did you use around the windshield? Is this a two part zinc-chromate type primer or rattle can primer? What brand are you using?

I just used rattle can for now. Not knowing when I'd get her to paint I didn't want to leave it uncovered for rust to start. I by laziness left some bare metal showing on another part of car and it had signs of it flash rusting and had to resand it. Depending on what the painter says it might get sanded back off its a pretty thin coat. As for the brand it is Dupli Color from Orielieys.

I'm a fan of chemical stripping, but it's a hassle. One trick I use is to lay plastic film over the stripper which slows down evaporation and forces the chemical into the paint.

If you are going to the trouble of repainting it's seems so much more thorough to strip 'er down.

Thanks for the input I on the other hand am not a fan of Chemical stripping. My car was badly painted blue with no primer over the mint green in about 1998. Windows in bad taping etc. I am a fan of the factory anti corrosion and I really only need to remove as much blue as possible and respray the mint green leaving as much factory paint intact as possible
