    What you use to remove head gasket residue.

    Just curious what everyone uses to remove head gasket residue? What seems to be safe?

    +1 On the bristle disc. I use them for all head gasket jobs I do at work. They come in green, white and yellow. Each one has a different abrasiveness to it. I always use the green. Just keep it moving and dont stay in one spot with it when using
