The one time I had that problem it was because I put more than two coats on at once (4 coats) and tried to buff it too soon....It hadnt cured completely even though it was two weeks later,Plus it was cold when I painted...it took almost two months before I could buff and polish it properly...
Now days I spray two coats and only two coats ,if I want more clear I spray two more coats after two days...and after sanding with 600-800 (of coarse)...to check to see if the clear is cured enough I press my finger nail into the clear to see if it leaves an indentation,if it does ,its not ready....
