Thats looking pretty good! What grit are you gonna use on the DA? Don't do too much with it or this might have to be the second to last full layer

I have 80 grit for the DA, it will just get the highs. Then I go to 120 grit on the long blocks.

Way too much work for me. When I get one done I'm definitely having someone else do it
