    You need to start with the pad on the panel you are correcting as the pad will fly apart.

    Personally I would risk it but feel free to give it a try and let us know how it goes

    Do you know what the speeds are, or even which grinder it is? Never ever put these on a normal grinder, you will just screw up the paint work!!!!!!!!!!!1
