Lighten up on the tack rag also, just drag it accross the surface....no pressure.

That could have been part of it as well. I can guarantee I wasn't just dragging the tac rag like a chamois. I was working it like a wash rag.
I will be thanking you and everybody else for days, Chip.

If you really rubbed the tack rag I suspect that is the source of your base fish eye problem.

It was worked like a wash cloth so that is probably a big part of it. Like I tell my friends who know it all, I'm still learning.

Many people make the same mistakes you made, myself included. The first thing a lot of people want to do is sand... bad mistake! You're just grinding any contaminants, such as silicon, into the surface, making it very hard to remove later. CLEAN-CLEAN-CLEAN first, then sand.
And the tack rags, if you rub with any pressure, they will leave way more behind than they pick up.
Good luck tonight!

yes indeed all these guys are right . here is a little tip. also take your tack rag and completely unfold it and make it like a big fluffy ball (loose) and gently use it on the surface. before i tack off a car prior to paint i take rubbing alcohol and put it in a clean (new) spray bottle and use that for a final wipe down and then tack it off . good luck to ya i wish you the best .

Started wetsanding it last night after a good wash with Dawn. Let's just say I got aggressive with the abrasive grit. I worked up to 600. Tonight 800 and 1200 wash before and after then tomorrow more clear. I thought I had the car devoid of any contaminants seein how I washed it with Dawn before doing any work. I just need to be more particular with preparation/cleaning. My mistake has cost me a bunch of extra time. The good point is, it will have nearly a gallon and a half of clear on it and should polish up real nice. It already has 3 quarts of clear on it now.
All these years of painting cars and on the one I am most particular with, I have a problem like this. Sheesh. We learn all the time, or at least I do.

I did some painting years ago and fisheyes were big problem. The paint sales guy came in and walked over to the welders and showed us that the MIG spatter cans had silicone in them. We replaced all the cans with non-silicone base and had the shop air filter changes. Problem gone almost over night. He also said no fish eye killer too even though he sold it. after this there was never any silicone based material brought into the shop.

Wash don't sand. Everyone likes Dawn but any good non silicone dishwash soap works well. It's the grease cutting acting you are looking for. Don't press tack cloths. just dust with them.

Make sure you shop vac doesn't blow dust all over. It needs good filters.

I used to fine spray water all over the paint area frome the ceiling down. This seemed to pull the dust out of the air. The floor was also wet so you didn't stomp dust inthe booth air.

I guess it boils down to preparation.
