Wire Brush

I am stripping the paint from the tail panel (behind tail lights) with paint stripper and finishing up with a wire brush in a drill. The panel is intricate, so it would be impossible to sand with a DA. Will the wire brush leave a surface finish thats okay for primer, or do I need to hand sand it? What about a surface cleaning disc in a die grinder? I just finished handsanding the underside of the trunk lid,and I don't think my fingertips can handle any more intricate sanding for a while

The wire brush should leave a nice surface for epoxy primer to bite into. You don't want to get any finer than 80 grit when applying epoxy primer.

I don't know why I thought the finish should be finer than that.

I know what I'll be looking into, next time.

Supposedly any finer and the epoxy won't have anything to bite into. I just found this out the last couple of months.
