How to take off ceramic coating on a mani?

I need to remove a bit of ceramic coating on the DNP Mani so the welder can weld a bung on there. How can I remove ceramic coating around where it needs to be welded?

I talked to the welder, and he hasn't had to remove it before. He can do it, NP, but if it's labor intensive, it's going to cost me a grip. He was saying it is like glass or something, which doesn't grind off easily. He asked me what kind of ceramic it was, and I have no clue. I think Jay had it coated at PG, but I'm not sure. It's black... don't have a pic handy, but can post one when I get home.

Please let me know what is the best way to do it, or the quickest way for my welder to do it. I was going to see him tomorrow, but I'd like to get some more info, or even try to get it off myself?

bring it over. i'll take that shit off. even if i have to use a farrier's file. yes i have one of those. bring the bung too and i'll take only enough of the coating to install the bung plus a little more for a weld bead.

when is the install day?

yeah, I am going to be working at my mother's tomorrow renivating her basement then helping a friend replace his ball joints on his ram 2500 in the afternoon, then i have to work friday 16 hrs then saturday 24 hrs then i have to work the Pats game on sunday so i can't help you out unless it's after the weekend. I have a training class at work (job 1) monday until 4pm, if you need help then let me know, i'll be there.

a Farrier's file is a file that a Farrier, or the man/woman that puts on and reshapes horseshoes, would use to reshape the horses hoof.. it's a large coarse file.

P.S. it was a joke.

you can grind that shit off with just a regular hand file. you can borrow one if you want.
