Angle grinder with soft wire wheel, or scotch brite wheel- do you care about the surrounding paint?

Actually I've got the exact same issue on my 1978 FJ45. I don't want to dork up the paint but I need the loose remnants of the 30 year old seam sealer out of there, plus I need to get rid of the rust where chunks have already fallen out.

They make these miniature wirewheels for Dremels, and that's one of the things I was thinking about for the rust/clean-out part of it. And to pry up loose chunks of old seam sealer without putting divots in the sheet metal, I was thinking of some sort of pointed wooden tool, maybe fashion something?

Then squirt new seal sealer in there (I have a tube ready to go), then mask it off and paint with rattle can that doesn't quite match. Too many projects!
