Could be a couple of issues...

1. Did you use the same gun to primer, seal, paint and clear - or a combination of guns? I've seen issues with chunks-o-stuff getting spit out by using the same gun repeatedly... I use seperate guns for everything!

2. How many coats of color and clear each did you shoot and how heavy?

Same gun 007 - one of those interchangable head guns - 1.7, 1.4, 1.3 nozzles. Only thing reused was the cup but it was cleaned very well between each time. I've got similar results from primer when I hold it too far from the object painted causing it to dry in the air or too much pressure or the wrong angle. I'm guessing I should have tuned it better to be wetter less air pressure more material. What are your thoughts?

sealer 2 coats. I felt like this could be sanded and in the future - I would probably get better results doing so. Directions say you can coat on top shortly after with no sanding. base coat 3-4 coats. clear 3-4 coats. 1st coat of clear wasn't very wet.

Found it

Figured it out. Not enough reducer. I went through and sanded and reshot base/clear over what I had. Using more reducer and playing witht he gun a lot it laid down really smooth. The clear I then reduced as well, but didn't adjust the gun for enough fluid to go on. So I ended up getting a little solvent pop in just trying to get a wet coat around it. Just a little pop. It color sanded out for me today. So everything looks very good now. There are only two real blemishes. One related to run and the other near the solvent pop. A run I didn't sand out enough before I reshot again. So when I did sand it out after reshooting you could see a slight color change. The other spot is very small but same deal slight color difference smaller than a dime. I think I can live with these. The rest looks very good. I'll upload pictures once I get it color sanded and buffed out. I finished 1k grit all around tonight. I'm not color sanding the inside.

Teaser

This is a pic of it after polishing one side. Paint looks better than any car I've ever owned so far. I'm going to put all this together when finished and title it my first paint job and show you guys from start to finish on it because I have hundreds of pics.

that and/or a slower reducer should do it if not theres a couple other things,but your sealer should be smooth as glass not lumpy enough to pop through the paint,one of the reasons I hate sealers did you use a tack rag? could be dirt in the sealer ,did you strain the sealer is the lumps just on the top surfaces? at this point theres one thing you should do and thats wet sand the whole car flat till it looks like red with white polka dots when its smooth repaint... if the paint dried before it hit the car it'll be dusty looking and you'll pic it up if you drag your finger over it that'll need a slower reducerplus extra tacking

I used a micropolish rag is that the same thing? The micro rag would get snagged on the particles and then leave fibers on. So I only did a very little with it. I strained the paint for the most part. I did sand down where the white specs were and reshot. You're right it all went away, so I am happy about that. I'm leaving the inner tub as it is. Most of it is hidden with the seats and everything I think no big deal its not smooth. I did not wet sand it so no visible white spots. If you run your hand down you can feel its not entirely smooth. The hood and outside body are looking sharp. Thanks for your input. -Mike

tack rags are tacky,in a pinch you can get them and strainers at lowes but go to the auto paint store the strainers are free and the tack rags are 5.00 abox.I think thats the original problem....when you prep a car use wax& grease remover then tack with a blower to get the last of the dirt and dust off.Let us know how you make out.

Made out fantastic. I ended up reshooting just the fender because the imperfection was too much for me to leave.
