Color sanding is a bit of a misnomer when flatting clearcoat, as there’s no “color” sanded off, but the process involves wet sanding the topcoat with very fine paper to eliminate the orange peel and dust particles. Many proponents of the art will recommend starting with coarser grit, such as 800, then repeating the process with a fine grade such as 2,000. However, as this was my first experience with this paint, and the fact there were only two coats of clear applied (you DON’T want to sand through the clear!) I opted to use only a “superfine” 1,500 grit paper.
