    i ran a 1200 grit piece over it, just gets rid of any dust bits that have settled when its been wet. its your call really.

    i cant stress the issue of sanding it properly enough otherwise you'll get so p*ssed off with it!!

    yeah basically, quick rub down, then carried on with it, i would recommend using laquer aswell as it makes it more durable.
