Sprayed clear then wet sanded and buffed and noticed dry spots, parts are not glossy

Ok so after posting an ad about bubbles in my clear coat and getting many helpful responses, thank you all, I've noticed another problem. I'm sure I just overlooked this since I'm a newbie but after i wet sanded with 1500 and then buffed I noticed parts of the car, to be exact on where at, top of the driver side and passenger side door where it curves a bit and then there is the window, I have dryness. The hood, fender, bumpers all came out nice and glossy but this part of the doors did not..
Maybe I didnt lay the clear on thick enough?

It sounds like you buffed through the clear and are now seeing basecoat. When planning to cut and buff, you also need to plan on more clear than otherwise to allow for the loss.

where you have curves like that it is easy to buff through the clear..just spot it in and you will be fine..

You should use a rubber squeegy when wet sanding you would have caught that before you buffed...and a soft block so your fingers dont leave groove marks.Sand the dry spots some more and be careful not to sand or buff through the clear.dry spots are usually due to poor lighting..
