What did you do with all of that heavy surface rust before priming it?

lovett86 01-11-2013 04:14 PM

lots of grinding discs and a big wire wheel on the grinder and i got some metal cleaner from work, id of rather sandblasted it, but i dont have one so i had to work with what i had

lovett86 02-03-2013 04:07 PM
