PPG 2082 StratoClear with HF "purple" gun

This is my first post.... but I want to ask if the HF gun you are talking about is that purple one...I am using the same with DCU 2082 Stratoclear w/2083 activator....I have ran out of the 2084 and and ran to the paint store to get a refill but all they had was 2083. I experienced what PPG tech suport called a "solvent pop"...the clear intially looked great (with the 2084) (sometimes the gun would sputter the clear....Is this a setting on the gun?) but when I got back from the paint store (about an hour later) and remixed with the 2082 with the 2083 the clear turned to a "cloudy" look... is this what they mean by a solvent pop?

I thought I would let the clear dry and sand, up to 1200 (wetsand) when I buffed with Meguiar's Yellow 8" pad with Meguiar's 85 high cut compound, I noticed the base coat had spots in it,Clear buffed realy nice,,my base color is black...I tried sanding this out but it looks like these spots are showing up in the clear...I took the sanding down almost past the color coat and the spots are gone...so my guess is that these white spots may be a result of the compound working in the solvent pops???? Anyone experience the same????

I am going to re-shoot the base and reclear today...rare day up here in Chicago...60 degrees after Thanksgiving...ya know?
