I will have to agree completely with Brian as to the importance of the initial cut of the filler has to be with a fresh course grit paper on a nice firm board sanding block, 36 grit on a 17 1/2 clip style longboard. If that is not flat from the start you will never get it flat with the finer grit papers on flexible blocks, esepecially on a big hood.
