    Does anyone know about color sanding a car? I was at the auto body shop a few days ago and they told me that i have a lot of water spots and the only way to get it off my car is to color sand it.

    Hey guys, I have a 5 inch long scratch on my driver's side door :) The scratch looks very white, but I can't feel it. I took it to Acura and they said they would water sand it out for me and said it MIGHT work. Can they screw up the finish by water sanding, or is it pretty safe?
