Sand it flat with 2000 and buff. When you sand it you want it to look uniformly dull like this quarter panel. Sounds like maybe you were moving too fast and it may have been a tad chilly both air temp and metal temp, also did you have your PSI high enough on the gun? Were you holding the gun close enough to your work?

Hopefully experts will chime in.
