What kind of grinder should I get to remove rust from floor pans.

Angle Grinder?

So buy a sander instead instead of a angle grinder?

Orbit Sander?

Is it just surface rust or what? I would use an air sander. Just a 90* air grinder with a sanding disc on it.

Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: Website
If you have a big enough air compressor, then then use a 90 degree air grinder, but most home air compressors don't have enough "CFM". Dewalt, Craftsman, Makita, all sell 4.5" electric 90 degree grinders, that work very well. You can buy stiff wire wheel atachments for rust removal, or sanding disc.

I'd get the grinder, they come in handy alot. plus you can put a wire cup on it that works really good with rust in awkward places. All grinders are about the same, just dont get a ten dollar one at a biglots or something, you'll regret it.

I bought a mikita 6 years ago and my buddy has been using it at his bodyshop for the last 3. ( I highly recommend lending tools to bodymen,mechanics and gm workers) Anyway the makita grinder is a good tool which will come in handy alot.
alot of my power tools are by them a none of them have ever broke
