Use prybars to gently push those low areas in the sail panel out, then use a shrinking disc to take the stretch out of them. Do a search on shrinking disc and read up.

lots of info here ! I have one question.... How do you get the most milage (minutes) out of the sandpaper ? I know soaking it and lots of water with some soap helps , but it still seems to quit cutting pretty fast ???? OR is this normal ? What brand of paper works the best ?.........thanks

Cheap paper wont last long - there are several good ones with Norton(my fave) and 3M the most normally available. Mirka is good and have been told that Indasa is not bad. There are Home Despot grades and there are auto supply shop grades - the auto body supplied are usually the best. Stay away from Harbor Freight or other Chinese, Indian, Korean as it will quit cutting real fast.

How quick it wears out is often a matter of what you are sanding. Primer - lasts for quite a while, bondo and other fillers, not so long.
