I would personally sand it all to prep for your repaint, but only remove as much as I had to and try to help it cure for awhile with a ir heat lamp or by sticking out to get exposure to sun where it can cure better then inside, or if you have a heat lamp stick that on for awhile, and let solvents work there way out. Cut the clear down too thin, and you could possibly run into different problems when laying the new base. Then don't rush your coats when you repaint. Even allow the base to sit overnight when you do recoat, and do the clear the next day and allow good time between coats. Sorry to hear about your dilema, it happens to all of us now and then when nothing seems to go right (I know I've had my share), and I bet that dupont isn't all that cheap.
If no one has any additional advice, maybe try to Pm Barry K cause he is pretty good at trouble shooting this stuff and what the cause may be with information of how things were done. It could be some unrelated factor with your new coat or more likely solvent build up and going over a fairly fresh clear that been stuck inside/ or had no heat on it to help cure.
