I tried an electric sander for about a minute.
So much toxic dust. I realised wet sanding is the only way.
The sanding mesh was really good

I sand mine using a Festool vacuum sander and also wear a mask. No dust.
Don't mess around with a small 4" roller. I found it easier to use an extension pole with a wide roller. Covers quickly and you can stand back without kneeling down too much.

Cut 3 holes in a black bin bag and put over head with arms through side holes.

Tape a smaller plastic bag on head and get mask and goggles to protect eyes and lungs.

Roller with long extending handle.
