That isn't orange peel, it's fisheye. There was some contaminate there that the clear isn't sticking too to put it in layman's terms.

Pretty sure it is orange peel. this part of the door was tipped away from me, and I just did not spray enough paint there.

The door was scrubbed with a nylon brush, using Dawn and water. There was a film of dirt under the moldings around the window opening. That was scrubbed with a nylon brush, until gone. And then wiped down with wax and grease remover, and before it dried, wiped off with another clean lint free shop wipe. Then sanded. And wiped again with W&G remover, before priming.

It's possible with a super high solid clear and if the previous coat was left to flash a little too much or something like that it's possible but it looks an awful lot like fisheye to me.

It looked like fisheyes to me too. A similar look can happen if the first coat is too heavy too. It's hard to tell in photographs sometimes.

My tip about sneaking up on the substrate by misting on the the first coat can also help eliminate fisheyes. A fisheye is what happens when the wet coat of paint breaks open over an oily or waxy spot. The paint has to be thick enough to pull away. By laying down tiny droplets of paint, they can't flow away from the contamination. The downside is the risk of ending up with a rough surface that translates itself to the surface of the final coat.

I think using a propane heater was mentioned. Any open petroleum flame will put oil in the air. All of that petroleum will cause fisheyes. To prevent fisheye contamination, all the air would need to be changed out in the room and the surface to be painted would need to be cleaned thoroughly with wax and grease remover. You may need to find another way to heat your work area.

Using "fisheye eliminator" isn't a cure. It's kinda like shooting off your toe because it itches.

The picture of the nose of the fender you have been looking at is before the repaint of the orange peel area.
This picture is after the repaint of the clear. Sorry, my camera was switched to a High res mode, the picture will be large.
