I just changed saddles and need to take a 2~3mm off the integrated seatpost on a Giant TCR
Could anyone tell me that type of file(s) and sandpaper I need to complete the job?
Links to the exact type of tools would also be highly appreciated along with any general tips for doing the job.

Non flexible tape like masking tape, some sort of (opaque) cellotape, aluminum foil tape for ducts (not duct tape). Don't use electrical tape.

If you wrap it around the ISP and the ends meet up, it means you've marked pretty close to level.
