    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.

    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
