Runs in clearcoat

I use nason high image clear and water sanded and added more clear about two weeks later. When i started adding the additional clear, silly of me I started way to heavy and it really didnt want to stick. Anyway I ended up with some fairly thick sags and runs. I sanded the runs and sags down smooth and buffed but I can still see where they were.
The nason high image is like magic but i goofed. I see and understand all my mistakes but i dont understand these prints that's left.
Thanks for any help.

If your sure you sanded the run flat, then I think it just may be too soft yet.
Runs stay soft longer because of the added material, and why it may buff differently and be tough to get rid of the ghost image of the run.
Try setting out in the sun for a day or putting some heat to the area to help things cure up more. Then try buffing or blocking and buffing again.
You always have to be a bit carefull with the first coat whenever your reclearing and it you have a fairly fine scratch underneath it, it will like to slide fairly easy.
Take a look at these threads.

Auctually the print that's left in the clear after the runs/sags are flattened looks like little white pin tip size dot that has the formation of the runs/sags. its been about 3 weeks since i recleared.
Thanks again for any help.

Maybe some solvent popping there because of all the material build? What it sounds like, and probably white because your compound or sludge is stuck in the holes.
If it left tiny holes in the paint, then the only way to get rid of them is to block sand down further till they are gone, and hope you don't go through before they are sanded out. If you go through the layers of clear you applied the second round into the clear applied earlier, you will likely be able to see the cut through when buffed, its not like you have 6 coats or whatever to work with, being applied in different sessions. If the panel is recleared though, a clear cutthrough into the previous clear seem to disappear.
Getting rid of pinholes, fisheyes, holes in the surface is much more difficult to remove without breaking through then a high spot like a dirt speck or run. When you get in trouble with sanding out a run is usually the area around the run, if you end up cutting into that surrounding area too much while trying to level and remove the run.
