Well, I managed to find an old power sander, courtesy of my future step-father Dan Raven. It’s an old Black & Decker 2400rpm model from the late ’70s and it weighs A LOT because it’s solid metal.
I went looking for some fresh sanding discs, but I wasn’t able to find the right ones at Canadian Tire (it is a very old model) so I’ll have to look at Home Hardware or The Home Depot this week. There was an old 50Grit disc on there in fair shape so I thought I’d get used to using it and see what I could do. Remember, this is all new to me so it’s still a novelty to see sparks flying from metal!
The results are still very coarse, mostly because I’m experimenting and learning. I will get some finer grit discs and primer this week, and also some other tools.
Here are a few shots of the test sanding on one wheel well:
