put a little to much clear on

hey guys i painted my car about 6 weeks ago bc/cc solvent

but with the intentions of flattening and polishing for a show finnish i thought i will apply an extra 2 coat = 5 wet coats in total

Now heres the problem (no runs no solvent pop)

but man the panels have got some ripple through it
the ripple is even all the way through every panel so its not bad bodywork this time

i have flattend it with 1200 on hard block then 3m 1500 c/c discs then trizact 3000 + polished BUT the ripple is still there

i know with the process i have done wet sanding etc there still a good amount of clear on it do i go lower grits ? to get rid of the ripple/waves

i was thinking 500 hard block 800 hard block 1200 hard block 1500 discs and 3000 discs

what would you recomend guys?

this is how it was when it was out the gun but obviously the clear pulled in with the clear drying causing the ripple
