You need to get it down where you see zero shiny spots left (those are tiny low spots). If it were me, I would block it all down with 400 or 600 and reshoot the SS.

Sounds like you got heavy orange peel. I had this happen to me on the Nova I did and it was because of two things... fan was closed down and not enough PSI. It sucks.

Hopefully an expert will add to this discussion.
