what is "color sanding"

Hi Guys,
just wanted to clarify what is meant bt the term color sanding. Is it just another name for wet sanding a color coat (not clear coat) of paint?

Yes, basically....................when colour sanding, you are taking off a bit of the paint to take out any imperfections such as orange peel, runs etc.

It's something that you have to be real careful with, as you could easily sand right through the colour.

Better to have a clear coat to sand and not get into the colour coat.

Back in the days when laquer was the main painting medium "color sanding" meant just that... sanding the color coat before clear was applied. This had to be done to make the laquer shine and the clear adhere.
With todays BC/CC systems "color sanding" is just a carryover term. The Base or "color" coat is never sanded. Although it's not usually necessary the clear can be to improve shine and depth...

Okay,
I just sprayed my trunk lid to touch up a little rust. BC/CC, got a drip off the vent hole on the spray gun lid on the last coat of clear , otherwise perfect. can you sand and polish that out locally, or would the whole panel have to be rubbed out? Is it possible to match the wet look of freshly sprayed urethane enamel?
p.s. I am using endura paint EX 2C.
