Sand, sand and sand…

Remove all staples and rough sand the hull with coarse (40 grit) sandpaper - preferably with electric tools: angle grinder, belt sander. The goal in this step is to remove excess glue from the surface, knock off protruding edges of the strips and remove obvious bumps and unevennesses. Be careful not to remove strip thickness

The important part of the fairing process is done with a longboard - 60-70 cm thin plywood board with handles and sandpaper (still 40-grit). The long surface reduced even hardly visible bumps and produce a much fairer surface than would any small base electric tool. check the going with a hand lamp held pow over the surface.

When you are satisfied (or fed up) it is time to mix epoxy…
