That should help to have a clean dust free garage for painting.
Saturday I spent hours sanding the exterior with 120. It resulted in a nice dull black with just a few sand-throughs. But sand-throughs only went down to the next layer, not down to the wood. I didn't get any pictures of the sanding. It resulted in a lot of dust.
I also painted on the boot stripe
Here she is Sunday outside after I sanded off the slightly 410-thickened epoxy I had painted on all interior surfaces.

I did sand through some areas on the interior. Tonight I recoated those. I'll scrape and sand them later and then I can start in on full painting.
It was good to paint the boot stripe as an experiment. I need to learn to paint on thin layers. The boot stripe has some areas where the pain cracked & spidered a bit. I believe it hadn't completed curing quite yet. I'll wait a few more days and sand it down before a recoat.
