Unfortunately, I can only grind the root. Once the root is in and I get a thumbs up, I'm only allowed to use a wire wheel for cleaning.

The root is the most important. After that the wire wheel should be enough.
I have more questions than answers

Yeah the tie ins are my greatest concern.

Grind back at least a 1/2 inch. And feather it pretty thin for a 1/4inch for the tie ins.
