    Most of the time, we used 36 grit on the G. Occasionally, if there were 4-8 coats of finish, I'd use 30. It was paperback, never PSA. I'd spray a light coat on the drum while it was running after cleaning it, then spray a little on the first 20" of the paper to get it to hold on the drum as i put it on.
    I'd only use one grit on the G. with 36, we'd follow the G with 80 on a super sander. Starting at the end of the head and running it first back to the foul line, then just flat to the tailplank and back to the foul line. Only when i hit a bunch of nails with the G did i have to hit the head an extra time to minimize the grit scratches.
    After the 80 on the super, it's still 80 - 4 trips with 80 paper on the rotary, then 80 screen on a rotary. The sealer before the base coat was the ticket making it less important to completely close the grain so the base coat would stay on top of it.
