Por-15 Removal

I have a quick, but redundant question.... I've got the body off the frame and I've been wire brushing the entire top of it in preparation for Por-15. It has a little raised surface scale, but it is nothing I'm worried about at all. The previous owner/restorer had sprayed all the readily accessable areas with something, probably Zero-Rust, and I want it gone before I proceed. Why, you ask? Because whatever it is they used, has surface rust starting to come through. Now, it isn't too bad, but I want a nice, clean, and even job all around. I've tried hitting this stuff with a knotted wire brush, but it barely removes it. Just wondered if anyone had any other thoughts? To answer the first question, no I do not have a spot blaster or any other abrasive spray system. Would that even work?

If it's the frame you're working on definately have it sandblasted-you'll be way ahead time and moneywise. The underside of the floor is also blastable (is that a word?) Bob

a 5 inch disc grinder does a nice job of cleaning up a frame for paint. Never tried it on a restoration project but when I was building stock cars I would grind the entire frame with a 5 inch disc grinder to dress it up and prep it for welding the cage to it. Worked great and if you use a used 120 (once it is used a bit the finish is better than 120) grit pad for the final pass it actually paints up pretty nice too.
