I started stripping the three paint jobs my car has has from the cowl, and after trying hand sanding, wire wheels, and abrasive discs, I came up with the following that worked great and fast. Thought I'd share...

Got one of these for christmas last year


I put the scraper blade on it, wrapped in electrical tape to make a softer backing for the sand paper.


I then cut down an 80 grit DA pad and stuck it to it.


Fit the vent perfectly and sanded clean pretty quick

Ingenuity at it's best!
I love clever ideas.
I once had to file some metal (tight spot, grinder wouldn't work) after about 20 minutes, I thought...."there has to be a better way"...so I clamped the end of the file into my Milwaukee sawzall. Worked like a champ!
I should have patented the idea, now they sell files to fit!
Nice job.
I have a cowl to strip and I'll use your idea, thanks for sharing it.

For what it's worth, I used the same set up to get into some of the corners of the engine compartment. You can only sand so much with a DA in there.
