thks for the comments......
like you guys I take the grinder seriously....sometimes the handles get in the way and I have to take them off, the trunk area was one of those. if you ever used a cupped wire brush on the end of the grinder that baby definitely requires a handle. And i always wear a full face mask. I would not consider using the grinder in an uncomfortable position with out the handle.

like you said it is a matter of choice,but my OLD hands and wrist like the handle

To use a grinder with or without the handle is a great topic.
I use one, and hate using friend's grinders without them but they tend to remove my handle to use it.
Each to their own.

I had a quick moment to work on the underside of the bonnet.....I hit it again with an abrasive disk, brake clean and then two different applications of mineral spirits with a scotchbrite pad and then followed by a degreaser. kind of thankless work but it really does cut the grease and grime. I also removed the locking plunger and it is sitting in paint remover.
and my favorite self etching primer

my repair piece did not have the very top piece that the battery cover slips in so I will use the original one and cut it so this can slip in its place
tomorrow I will figure out how to make it fit into place

just call me popeye that spot welder is heavy as crap, you have to hold in place, clamp down on the lever, and then use a pinky finger to push the toggle switch.....
heres the inner sill of the drivers side painted with gloss rustoleum, and it gets painted with weld through primer on the bare steel
the rocker panel,
100 plus spot welds later, I used a fan today blowing on the area I was working on to keep the fumes away from me
all spot welds sanded and primed, there really wasn't much to sand down
