    Try 60 first. 40 takes a lot of effort to move. 80 is super slow.

    An automotive paint supply should sell self-adheasive rolls of sand paper.

    24" skimming knives are tricky to use. I would fair as far as possible before adding another layer.

    When I fair, I use one diagonal direction then drop a grit for the other direction. Then drop another grit to return to the first diagonal.
