Sanding SPI epoxy

It's been over 7 days since I've applied SPI epoxy. I want to put some filler over some low spots. Which grit should I sand epoxy with? I was thinking 120 would be fine or should I go with 80 grit?

dont worry about the recoat window. very seldom will you be ready for filler that soon after stripping. an 80 grit anchor pattern is the best thing to apply filler on.
