With the bare hull clear and washed (again) it was time to clean off the whole surface with a flap wheel grinders. This takes off the surface rust and scale without polishing the surface too much. Along the welds and under the frames I used a wire brush, again on the grinders. The dust was pretty dire, particularly where lumps of mud remained, but the end finish is nearly clean enough to paint.
