Belt sanders rock. I use a medium (100-120) grit belt.

Use a dust mask. (Or do it like me--get someone else to wear a dust mask and do it. :))

Personally, I would not sand the surfaces besides the one the mesh glues to--caustic haze remover will take off pretty much anything on an aluminum frame, but make sure you have good ventilation, and use the proper PPE.
