when you use four coats in one spraying it should only be for your second round of clearing to hide stripes(my 2 cents), and not all the coats are applied wet, you gradually decrease gun speed and your last coat is wet. You also have to give it longer flash times. When I hear four wet coats and twenty minute flash times I'm instantly thinking solvent pop, or in your case solvents suspended in the clear and you just sanded to them to open them up, or they worked their way up. If it's black you would have been able to see them instantly but sometimes the color will hide them. I have a hunch this is what you're dealing with. Four coats is living on the edge without the proper reducers, flash times, and spraying techniques.
