Name that paint app defect!

while my introduce yourself post may not be live yet, i wanted to get this up on the board so I can solve the issue this weekend.

basically, i sprayed my very first non rattlecan paint this week to repair the paint on my old BMW. it's been an adventure to say the least.

well, i am VERY happy how things have worked out so far, although I believe the DT870 reducer I was sold is WAY too fast for the 95 degree weather i was spraying in. FYI, the paint is PPG Global and Concept Clear 2021.

So the base went on fairly well, but the clear ran like Ben Johnson. No problem...these are small repairs and i wet sanded everything out. However, in a few spots the clearcoat runs sorta had 'air bubbles' in em. I am afraid to keep on sanding.

Anybody recognize this particular issue in the photo and have a possible remedy? Just keep on sanding?
