Solved Short Hunting on an OMGWTF Trim

Hello! Can anyone give me some more things to try in regards to a few shorts I found?

I have a short to ground on the 1.15V line (Continuity mode; One probe on ground screwpost, another on the 1.15V point mentioned here; and I'm getting a beep). This makes some sense because it is fairly close to GND around that screw post so maybe it's a skill issue. But I've resanded it probably 10 different times now with varying levels of grit and I can't seem to figure out what's up.

Even more curious is I also have a short on the 1.8V line. Which isn't even close to an edge I would have cut, so I have no clue why it's shorting to GND.

I've been flipping through the layers on the Compendium, and that helped me track down and fix a short I had as a result of a not-well-sanded edge for the 1V line. But I haven't been able to get these two. Any ideas?

Here is my cut (referencing Customledmods working trim over here):

Here's an example of my edges:

And I tried to mark out my cut on the compendium to better see where the voltage pours are:

52Ohm on the 1.15V and 37Ohm on the 1.8V; which is normal

Monkey brain just started with continuity mode before checking resistances

I checked everything else and they're all fine so I think it's probably safe to test with the PMS now. Thanks!
