Brian is giving you good advice here but one thing concerns me. You indicated you were using a DA for the initial blocking. If this is a fairly flat panel a DA is not adequate. Use a long firm sanding block or air file and sand in a sideways crosshatch pattern as you see in the videos. Best of luck.
