If i had to guess, i'd say the sealer caused the 320 marks underneath it to "lift". I know alot of people will disagree with that but i have seen it happen. Most sealers are pretty "hot" and will sometimes cause issues. 320 is fine as long as your not shooting a metallic color or trying to blend a panel. As far as fixing it goes...resand the base you have one the car now with 600. Recoat with more base and look for scratches...if they are still there, let the base dry to tack and 600 lightly, apply more base and so on til the scratches are hid. Once you have the scratches hid, apply a couple light coats over the entire panel and clear. Again, probably not the "by the book" way but it will work.
