can see sand paper scratches in basecoat

I had to repaint a door and fender on my chevelle. Got all the right materials; sealer, activator, reducer, base coat, and clear coat. After mixing and applying the sealer over the spots I primed twice, I put on the base coat.

Where the sealer was sprayed I can see a bunch of scratches from the sand paper. There are no scratches where there was no sealer.

I heard from a paint guy that it could have been a incompatibility issue with paint and sealer?

I mixed the sealer correctly too, 4-1-1.

I was planning on trying to sand down the base coat with some fine sand paper to get the scratches out.

I also used only 320 on the sealer.
