solvent pop problem

I just sprayed a fender from a car with urethane and ended up with solvent pop. I want to put clear on but i was going to sand before applying clear anyway. Can i just sand down the fender get rid of the solvent and spray the clear or do i need to shoot more paint on it again before clearing? How do i prevent the solvent pop problem from re-occuring when i clear? more time between coats? Thanks to anyone that can help me out.

Let it sit if it hasn't aready.

Rebase it, don't pile it on.

Lots of flash time between coats.

Let the base sit for hours, even 12 hours is good, before clear.

Medium wet for the first coat of clear, let it flash for at least 15-20 minutes.

My best results always come from allowing more flash time. There was a dude in my shop, he had worked painting taxicabs for decades, who insisted that you had to pile everything on back to back. He insisted that if you waited more than a half hour to clear, it wouldn't "bite" into the base. His jobs always looked like arse to me.
