Grinding in automotive modification is the process of smoothing out and perfecting the surface of a car part, such as the body panels, to make it look better and more aesthetically pleasing. This process can involve sanding, polishing, and buffing the surface, as well as removing any rust or corrosion that may have built up over time. Grinding is an important part of any automotive modification project as it can help ensure that the surface of the car part is smooth and uniform, making it look its best.


Cutting metal in automotive for DIY can be done with a variety of tools. An angle grinder is a great tool for cutting through thick metal components and is best used for larger projects. A die grinder is a great tool for more precise cuts for smaller components and can be used for detailed work such as preparing metal for welding. Finally, a cut off tool is perfect for quickly cutting through metal components and is ideal for making straight and clean cuts.

Deburring or Shaping

Deburring or shaping metal in automotive using an angle grinder and die grinder is an effective process for quickly removing burrs, sharp edges, and excess material from metal parts and components. Angle grinders are used to sand, grind, and shape the metal, while die grinders can be used for more precise and intricate detail work. Both tools can be used together to quickly and effectively shape metal parts to meet any desired specifications.

Surface Prep and Sanding

Surface prep and sanding are essential parts of any DIY automotive project. Sanding helps to remove any imperfections or rust on the metal surface, which will provide a smoother finish when applying paint or primer. Angle grinders and die grinders are well suited for these jobs when used with the right sanding attachments. It is important to use the right type of sandpaper - coarse, medium and fine grades - depending on the amount of material that needs to be removed. Before painting, any residue from sanding must be completely removed, and the surface should be wiped down with a cloth and cleaning solution to ensure a smooth and even finish. 

Rust, Corrosion and Paint Removal

Rust on car metal parts like main body, wheels or components can develop due to a combination of factors including climate, age, material type and style of driving. If ignored, they could eventually cause metal to dissolve away and lead to an array of safety problems. Angle grinders and die grinders are great tools for removing rust, corrosion and paint from metal surfaces. They are perfect for getting into tight corners and crevices. With an angle grinder, the rust and paint can be easily stripped away by grinding the metal surface at a high speed. A die grinder also helps to remove rust and paint, but it is better suited for smaller areas. The cut off tool is perfect for removing larger chunks of rust and paint, and it can be used to cut away large sections of metal. All of these tools will help to make the job of rust, corrosion and paint removal much easier.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is essential for any DIY automotive job. This includes safety glasses, hard hats, face shields, gloves, hearing protection, and non-slip shoes. Wearing PPE is important to protect yourself from injury and exposure to hazardous materials. It is also important to ensure you are following any applicable safety regulations while performing any automotive work.
