I tried one, didn't work well. I also tried a large sander/polisher with 6"
disc and 40 grit...worked well. But was hard to control and dust was just
unmanageable. Was miserable using it! I ended up using a paint
scraper...changed out blades often....scraped 5-7 layers off....fairly
Make no mistake...was no piece of cake but it was best way to manually
remove the paint build up....
If I had the money...I would have had it soda blasted
