Then it would be good to go for a topcoat. (Assuming the top was in good shape to start.)

If the top had some waves or dings, I would go start out blocking with 180 dry then put on a second coat and block with 400 dry and then wet with 500 or 600.

7 Hours up to this point? Something is way wrong.
I'm with this guy other than the fact that I do everything wet... It kinda sucks but it seems i get better results this way everytime.. so I stick with it.. but I wish you luck... and as far as sanding time goes it's about the same for me as roger, but a little long with the 400 cause of sanding wet. about a hr or so..
