Rust under and behind head liner.

Ok, so I want to remove the surface rust from the underside of the roof. It is a '65 Mustang Coupe. It is just surface rust really. What I am looking for is a scotch brite type of pad I can put on a DA sander, and sand off the surface rust. Do they make such a thing. I don't want to use a sanding pad, as the under side has a lot of irregular surfaces along the windows, and I figured something like a thick scotch brite pad would work. Once I am satisified with the surface it will be epoxy primed to seal out all moisture. So is there suck a thing? or can someone recommend something else to use to remove the surface rust?

I would really like to stay away from the chemicaly and acids. There are a lot of places it can get into, and not be able to wash out thoruoghly. I am kinda looking for something similiar to a nylon wire wheel, that I can run on a DA sander. Scotch bright has theese "hookit" pads that go on a wheel, but I can't find them anywhere.

are you sure it's just surface rust? Mustangs normally rust out from above, so if you have rust underneath it normally means there toast... does it have a vinyl roof?

get a green drill pad from any Wal-mart or home center. it'll remove rust and paint with no problem.. don't know of anything that goes into a DA sander but you would need to lock it orbital anyway.. don't get brown as that can remove metal too

Why don't you try a fine wire steel brush or a brass brush in a drill? That will get into every nook and cranny. You could also try a needle scaler.

Here is a link for the 3-M hook-it pads you are looking for: CLICK HERE
