I have a nice 1/8 thick metal cabinet from my father inlaw 48" X 60" X12" . I need recommendations on removing old paint and surface rust. Not to much pitting - - will navel jelly remove paint? I was thinking Paint stripper then sand with my pc 390 (will this hurt my ROS) - - I also have an air grinder - - to big for my sand blaster. Some oil smudges should I wash it down with dawn dish soap first? Are the spray can wax and grease removers at auto zone any good?

removing oil smudges with dawn soap work better if you use hot water
