Another key tool is a grinder with a flap-wheel in a finer grit. This allows you to clean up metal, remove paint or undercoating, and do general grinding, but it’s also a great way to clean up burs, meat hooks, and round out rough radiuses that are bound to occur while cutting sheetmetal—even with a good air saw. A grinder with a flap wheel is also a great way to clean up the edges of any plastic bits you may have trimmed, such as flares, bumper covers, and so forth.
