clear still fingerprinting

It's been at least a month since I sprayed my car bc/cc using kirker product and it will not cure hard. It fingerprints when it's hot but not after it cools. You can sand and buff to a high gloss but it's not getting any harder. Lacquer thinner or reducer doesn't affect it but this can't be cured. I did reduce the basecoat and clear and I went by the tech sheet flash times. I emailed Kirker a few times and they thought the clear may have skimmed over and trapped solvents. I would have thought with all the heat the solvents would have escaped by now. I thought about the activator but all the parts were sprayed at the same time and two of the pieces(plastic) are cured and do not fingerprint. Any ideas before I get the sandpaper out?
