Initial sanding with my DeWalt variable speed sander with 8" soft pad. 80 grit paper is used.
Looking pretty good.
I have to reset about 50 screws that are not drilled deep enough, and then fill all the screw holes with Famowood No. 1 wood filler. Final sanding by hand with a long board before sealing with CPES and Interlux 2000E primer.
