Note: This guide is a basic overview of the steps to restore your Ozpig, for a neater finish we recommend that you break the pig down and clean and paint it in pieces, however, today I have left ours in one piece as it lives in our back yard.

Step 1. Tools you need!

Step 2. Remove the rust!

Each of these tools will give good results however the grinder is the most efficient of them all.

Using a wire brush

If you don’t have access to power tools, a wire brush is good for light rust. However, it will work for really rusty Ozpigs however it will require more effort.

If you have access to a drill, a wire brush attachment is a good option as it requires less effort but and gives far better results than a hand wire brush.

If you have access to a grinder, a  flap disc or wire brush attachment requires very little effort and offers the best results; a wire brush attachment is also a good option.
