    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.

    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.
