Wet-Sanding and Color-Sanding describe the same process

Before modern clear coats became the norm it was usually referred to color-sanding because you could see the color of the paint coming off as you sanded.

With clear coat paints you see a milky color which is the clear material as it is sanded off.

To me wetsanding is the correct and logical word ,because thats what you use ,
WET= water & soapmixture or Last Touch ,Quick Detailer.
SANDING = sandingpaper.

I've always refereed to it as wet sanding since that's the "process" I use to sand.

Shave & A Hair cut

A long time ago a shop I worked at, the painter had a beard and his wiskers would get in the paint and I got to sand them out and buff. So we would joke about it and I was the barber he picked.

Some old timers I worked with also referred to it as shaving paint.

I always refer to it as "wet sanding", though when I went to Maaco the other day he called it "water sanding". Whatever, its all the same thing. :dunno

I'm thinking "color sanding" is wet sanding the peel down until it's flat as done on, but not limited to, trailer queen show only cars.

Usually I call it wet sanding.
Sanding clear, I call that color sanding.

I'm surprised I never heard my ex-teacher call it shaving.

I have used a fresh razor blade with rounded edges to level out runs, sags, and simular defects to speed up the color sanding process.
I would think that's what paint shaving is.

And although we call it sandpaper, sand is no longer used as the abrasive.

FWIW- I refer to the process as; wet-sanding with finishing paper
