    Fairing with a long board5ft/1.5metres, I used spray on quik grip which stuck the sandpaper evenly, my arms are jelly and it was quite a hot day. I wasted some effort/Qcell by using the belt sander before fairing with the longboard , some stuff just has to be done the hard way and there is no way of avoiding it. I think I'm more than half way through, probably 6 hours sanding and 4 Q cell mixes to go. I could spray a weak paint , let it dry , then longboard , then carefully belt sand... maybe later towards the end .

    Thanks BlueBell, yes a long board belt sander would be nice...but if I make sure I eat plenty of protein, I'll end up a fair bit fitter, who needs a gym..ha.
