What does that do differently than regular sanding though?
Smoother sanding. Gives it that final touch. Could we see some pictures? Host them through Photobucket.com!

I'll try to get some pictures today, but no promises as today is my little sister's birthday party, then I'm going to my g.f.'s for her dad's birthday party and I won't be back home until 12-ish. For a description for the time being, it's silver with the vents on the sides, back, and the middle section on the front left black; the power/eject buttons are chrome; the controller is silver w/silver dongle, the jewel is clear with the silver Xbox letters and the hole cut out underneath it for future plans of LED's; and the part of the headset that you plug into the controller is chrome as well.
As for mods I've already done, I have the power button LED's blue and blue LED's in the controller ports, although, I need brigher ones than the 5 volt, 30mA, 300mcd ones that I have in there now (I got it right on the power button LED's though, using 3.7 volt, 20mA, 2600mcd ones).
Pictures to help the probably poor description soon!

you havent been on the scene for longer than a month, yet you say youve seen many people screw up their xboxs with clear coating? anyways, looks like some of those cuts need some sanding. But, you aren't finished so Ill just sit back and wait
ive been here just without a user name

wet sanding is usualy with fine git sand like 1000-300 grit sand paper.
-wet sand with 320 grit
-come back and we sand with 600
-use a microfiber cloth to clean with first clean surface with rubbing alchohal then come back and clean again with water
-prime it with about 2 to 3 good coats with about 15mins in between coats
-wet sand with 1000 grit, not to much just a little across the primed surface to make everything smooth( make sure you wait at least an hour after the last coat of primer before sanding)
-then spray some sealer primer on 2-3 coats
-wait about an hour after last coat of sealer wet sand a little with 1000 grit
- then start paiting

I still need to at least wet sand it because it feels a little powdery (I guess that's how I'd describe it as) and I think a wet sand will solve that, however, the highest grit sandpaper I have is 150. I have 2 very small sheets, 3" x 4", that are much higher grit, almost smooth feeling, but I don't think that's enough sand paper to wet sand the whole Xbox and controller.
