    nasty dent on driver's side bed panel, shabby seats, cigarette burned interior roof, missing berf bar pad, cracked rain visor, removed hood scoop, unmentionable stain on back bench?
    I was once grinding inside a pressure vessel during a shut down in a oil refinery. We had the big large angle grinders. Anyway we were grinding away, getting ready to do some patch work on some weak spots, when WHAM!! the rock on the wheel busted off! it sent quarter sized pieces of diamond blade bouncing around. Had it not been for both the repsirator and the cutting face shield, I would have sustained major facial damage.

    I always believe that those angle grinders are way more dangerous thatn any kind of welding or rigging done on the job. NEVER use one with out gloves or or aproperface shield AND safety glasses.

    plaenty of poor SOB's walking around with one eye or seven fingers and two thumbs because of those things.
