Thanks sir. I sprayed the car with same issue. So I didn't wet floor and it has done it again. I changed from my usual clear. I used omni mc270. I usually use transtar motor city clear. I have never had this issue.

Are you sure it is fisheye and not solvent pop? They look a little alike, if there is a slew of it, it is probably solvent pop.

Try color sanding the clear,then recoat. A longer wait between coats is needed with some of the clears. A lot of the guys use SPI, supposed to be the best.
