Welding up Trim Holes
Trim holes are best welded up if you haven't a mig welder then you can hire one . To weld the holes first get a scrap piece of metal and drill a hole
Then grind of with a 60 grit sanding disc making sure you don't over heat, it if you go through start again .
Right removal of old paint ?
The easiest method is paint stripper but don't wash of with water as that will produce surface rust wipe it of with old rag or paper wipes then any that's let will D.A off when its dry. Make sure there's a cover on interior parts or plastic parts around the area as paint stripper will mark these type of products . The other option is to D.A the paint but this is long and very Boring ( D.A Dual action sander ) . The next option is an inch grinder with a rotary wire wheel the very heavy duty type and just go for it. Just don't hit any thing that you don't want to, either take them off or mask them up with 2 inch masking tape and cardboard.
