    Starting to look like something, now I have to figure out how to get the scale off the sheet metal. Sanding has no effect...ugh

    If that's hot rolled you might have a hard time getting paint to stick.
    Sandblasting?

    Best thing I’ve found is 120 grit blue Klingspor paper on an orbital.

    Laying a dished grinding wheel flat is the quickest, but removing the grinder marks afterwards is a bit counterproductive.

    A friend used vinegar saturated paper towels laid on the steel to remove the scale from a trailer frame he built. He said it worked.

    So to get the mill scale off I sprayed the panel with white vinegar, laid some paper towels on it and sprayed again then covered with plastic and let it sit for 24 hrs re wetting 2 times. Then I hit it with scotchbrite and rinsed with soapy water. Pleased with the results, the other sides are soaking
