Weird problem in clear coat.

Hello all. Here's the situation, and my problem.

I painted a hood, BC/CC, and it was fine and well. More than a month after, I decided to paint and clear the underside. I masked off the top of the hood with some paint paper, and covered the stand with foam and masked it off as well.

I then painted the underside, and put it through a 45 minute bake cycle. It turned out well, except for where the stand was contacting the top side of the hood (along the sides of the cowl).

It fogged out in a weird pattern, and feels almost scrathed there. I extensivley tried some Norton Liquid Ice polish, and that did not work. So, I hit it with 2500 then polished it out, again no luck.

Any idea what happened? My camera cant capture what Im talking about...I would have thought after more than a month the clear coat would be safe from fogging out like this. How can I ensure I dont cut right through the clear-coat while trying to remove this?

Any help!?

My guess is that the bake cycle was hot enough to soften the existing clear and the weight of the hood on the stand was enough to push the stand into the clear. Only option if it will not sand/buff out is to sand and re-clear .

I'm thinking that the heater heated up both the stand and the hood meal. That would leave the paint in those areas hotter than the rest of the hood because the paint is sandwiched in with no way for the heat to escape. Maybe those areas are scorched. In any case, it's a redo I believe.

Wow I thought I was the only one this had happened to. The same thing happened to me but I thought it was from some type of oil in the foam as it was a brand new stand that I was using. Nothing worked to get rid of it and I had to repaint the hood.

This is really not looking good for me....

Any idea what a shop would charge to simply re-clear a hood if I already prepped it?
