Surface conditioning tool

Has anyone used this type of tool to remove multi layers of paint and zolotone from the interior panels?

Looks a mite aggressive to apply to a very thin aluminum panel. The difference between removing the zolatone and blowing a hole through a panel would be minuscule. Way beyond my skill set, anyway.

Auto body tool, make for cleaning steel body panels - used many - rip right through thin aluminum panels! Even thick aluminum it will scar badly.

I bought this and tried it out...it conditions the aluminum very nicely...however you can not polish out the surface to a high shine, the groves are just to deep. If you wanted a nicely satin finish, then this might work. Tool back to eastwood no hassle return.
