I took a video of the inside before I closed it. The shiny parts around the aluminum hardpoints is exess epoxy that was squeezed out when I placed the weight ontop of them.

2015-10-04: I made a sanding board for this task. 3 inches wide, 18″ long with a handle. I glued a 36 grit sanding paper to the board and fastened a vertical guide using an other board. This setup made the sanding very easy.
