Default Poor prep work on lap siding

I looking for suggestions.
I'm new to exterior painting and have subcontracted some exterior painting. The house is for favor to a contractor that I subcontract from.
The pervious person that attempted to do the job. Power washed the house and damage the wood lap siding with by putting serval gauges in the sides as well as made the wood rough with fuzzy. Thee surface was painted and looks like crap.

I'm would appreciate some suggestions of what I need to do to have the to come out to be done right.

This is the were I need start. I need to sand the surface and fill in the gauges.

I would appreciate and suggestions of what I should use to prep the are to have the exterior when complete to not have the current imperfections.

Thanks as a I said at the start I have not done much exterior work mostly interior. The only exterior I have done was new prior. So that is why I asked for advice. Sorry you feel that way Brian.

Try sanding with 40 grit first followed by 80 grit. Use a wood filler on the bad gouges, the damaged (gouged) siding should really be replaced.

Depending on the severity of the damage sanding could be all that is needed. You need the power tools that will get the job done though.

Since the fuzzy parts and rough parts were painted over already I would first start by sanding. If it's lap siding a palm sander would probably work. Good luck & pictures always help

The ones you really have to watch out for are the impervious ones.

You should have posted a close up view of the siding. Sand and fill....and make sure it's clean.
