lixando a pintura
Explanation:
The term color sanding is an old term used by body and paint shops. It is more of a technique than anything else. It is a light sanding process of the paint's surface, usally with very fine 600 to 2000 grit sandpaper. It's ment to eliminate surface blemishes by removing the very top surface of paint or clear coat, on today's cars. After "color sanding" however, the surface becomes dull and requires polishing to restore the luster.
