English term or phrase:sanding block
Sanding is where you finally start to get convinced that this might just work. I started with a fairly coarse grade of paper (80 grit or so) to get it down to the approximate shape then 150 and then finished it with 300. As well as sanding back your repairs you should remove all the old clear gloss so the paint will stick. Deep scratches should be sanded, filled and sanded again. This worked well on the panniers as well as the various fairing scratches. Where the surface you have filled is supposed to be flat or convex use a ***sanding block*** to get the contour regular and run your fingernail gently across boundaries to check for raised edges etc. You may find numerous other cracks while sanding. Best to fix 'em now. Don't be in too much of a hurry (unless its winter, of course). Don't think the paint job will cover any blemishes. It won't and there are two tiny ones on my bike but you probably wouldn't notice them unless I pointed them out.
