    I used my little 5" Bosch Grinder with Sanding disks and I use wax for lubricant on the wheel makes quick easy work of it.

    I used a 4 inch side grinder with a 60 grit sanding wheel worked great.

    I use a cheapy angle grinder with a wheel made for aluminum. The others plug up fast!

    I used a belt sander to get a very nice look, like its factory done.

    Belt sander with a rough grit. Five to ten minutes and you are done.
