U-POL Raptor sanding question

OK, today i started sanding the tub....
i see the pics here and there of progress and of course you want to make sure you sand enough. I used 120 grit with a air sander and tight spots were done by hand.
-just making it dull and scratchy should be enough correct? (I did go to metal on some parts thanks to the power of air tools)
-How long should I allow for drying? I can take my motorcycle to work on Friday, just want to spray Friday night and be able to get to work on Monday with at least my driver seat back in.
**Any other tips?

dull and scratchy should be fine. just make sure you clean ALL of the dust out.

2 full days as long as it isn't in 100% humidity hot weather you should be good to put just the drivers seat back in. but longer than that to fully cure.

good luck!
