Product splatter leaving permanent "water" marks.

Product splatter leaving permanent "water" marks.

Im wet sanding a paint job I finished recently, its a single solid colour, 2k white. The issue im having is that when I buff out the 2000 grit scratches with compound, I get these marks from were the product splatters landed on adjacent panels.

No matter what product I use it leaves them, even finishing polishes, ill get one area mint, then when I buff the part beside it the splatter that then gets wiped off leaves marks, they are only visible under fluorescent lighting, not visible in daylight. They are almost like water marks, they are in the shape of how the splatter has landed. They cant be buffed out, must be wet sanded to remove, but then I have the same issue all over again.

Is it because the paints so new the product "seeps" into the paint?

Anyone had similar issues?

Have tried 3m perfect it rubbing compound
concept chemicals surface ultimate glaze
reflections cut and polish
wax and grease remover also causes it.

Yeah its a urethane. Thats what im thinking aswell, its been over a week since I painted it and have had warm weather though. I buffed another part I did months ago with the same paint and havent had an issue, so it must just be the curing.

Bust it open, let it sit (breath) a week or so, then grab the buffer and get after it.

I've had that happen before and it took 3 weeks before it was ready but I used a low end base and clear and had to much material on it.(one of those two color fade jobs) Plus I rushed it....

Yeah im just guna wait it out, its been about 3 weeks and its still doing it, although its getting better.

Im going to use nason single stage 2k next time. I used Lechler 4:1 but im not going to use it again due to this issue. It was fine when I painted my car in a ss metallic becuase you cant wetsand and buff it anyway so I never noticed it before.
