    Depending on your results with the fine sandpaper you may need to go to steel wool.

    I usually wet sand epoxy when I've messed up with 800 = 1500 grit wet sandpaper.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oVtmJhh_Ss&t=158s

    Did you run a torch or heat gun over the surface after it was applied to remove the bubbles? this might have caused your "dips." Use fine tweezers if you've got a bit of dust.

    You may want to watch some of there videos on how to avoid imperfections.
