Im about to begin sanding down my 63 4dr and wanted to get an orbital sander and trim removal tools.

As far as the trim removal tools go are there any must haves that I have seen in Classic Industries, Year One, etc, cataloges?

Also I have a Porter Cable 135 PSI 6 Gallon Pancake Air Compressor so Im not sure if I can use an air orbital or not. Saw this one at Summit and wondered if i should buy it

or should I get an electric from Lowes or Home Depot

I am almost done sanding mine to bare metal. Takes forever....Personally I have used an electric sander from Harbor Freight. I would recommend an electric. I just think it is more convenient then starting your compressor enerytime you have some time to sand. Mine worked great...Good luck

A 6-gallon pancake compressor will not keep up with a DA air sander. Go electric. For reference, your air compressor must produce a higher CFM rating than your tool requires.

Yeah I had a feeling that air wasnt gonna work out. Electrics not a problem for me just didnt know how much it made a difference to have the air for performance, maybe more effective.

Anyone know about the trim removal must have tools?
I have alot of the standard type tools nothing custom for removal.
