What grit paper for stripping paint and rust???
#1
Now that I finally have air I am going to buy a new DA.  What grit paper should I use to sand off the paint and rust??  80 grit?

Thanks!

80 is a good choice for stripping old paint.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

+1 on 80 grit however be careful with spinning the DA too fast and spending too much time in one spot as you will remove some of the metal
I found it was better to use a buffing/sanding machine which has much slower speeds to remove the bulk of the paint then finish off with the DA perhaps with 120 grit
