Paint wrinkling or lifting...help

Can you tell this is my first paint job?

More problems: I repaired the door with back into shape and then I sanded down the clear with 320 and wet 600. Then I let it sit over night and put the wax/grease remover on until cloth was clean. Then I put PPG expoxy sealer down as a first wet coat.

After wet coat the sealer was lifting/wrinkling in about 5 areas the size of baseballs. Of course, not over my repair but over the clear.

So what is my problem and how do I fix it?

I figure after sanding maybe I should have let it sit in the sun or let it rest a few days for the solvents to escape. I just read that in a search anyway.

Also, while doing the search I heard stories of problems with clear coats too.

Lastly, how long do I wait or should I not wait before color sanding and buffing?
My car is still in clear and needs sanding.

Pictures below!

I am very frustrating especially because of the way these doors were damaged.

Please let me know what to do to correct this new problem.

Thanks again,

SAM
