How To Clean The Floor Pan

Anyone know an easy way to clean the floor pan and frame?

Besides removing the body and using a rotisserie?

I need to clean the floor and frame of my first car. One thing I have working for (or against) me is the previous owner(s) allowed the transmission and rear end seal to leak for long periods. This softened the factory undercoating. But, it also makes for a very messy situation.

I tried using a wire brush on a high speed grinder. I am concerned about breathing all that dust it makes. This stuff is 50 plus years old and who knows what GM used to manufacture undercoating back then? Even wearing a paint mask I don't feel safe.

I can scrape a lot of the stuff off. But if there was a easier way to remove it, I'm open for suggestions.

A rotisserie would be great. But not in my budget.
