Making a good ground contact

I have been installing an AAW wire kit in my 69 Camaro. After getting frustrated trying to clean/scrape/ gouge paint off of the metal surface for a ground contact, I finally found an easy solution. For those who have a porting kit with the sandpaper rolls and mandrel, you will notice the mandrel nose protrudes out of the sand roll a tad. After drilling your screw hole, chuck the mandrel with roll into your drill and use this to clean the paint from the surface. The protruding mandrel nose will fit the hole (like a guide) and the sandpaper roll will clean the paint without any unsightly damage after the job is completed.
The smaller mandrel/roll for small screws and the larger mandrel/roll for the biggies i.e.: battery cables, heavy ground straps. It works wonders an only seconds.
