Now i understand. Well, sanding the clear and reclearing wont fix any problem with the metallic. If the metallic is standing up on end you might have used to fast a reducer. When spraying a complete use a overall reducer. This keeps the base wet longer to let the metallics lay down. As far as your fish eyes, how long did you let the base dry before clearing. That can cause fisheyes if you applied to clear to so. I use dupont everyday , stay away from fisheye killers. Causes more problems then anything for me. If the surface is clean , you give proper flash times and make sure no foreign substances are on yourself, fisheyes will not be a problem.
You might have to sand the car down,wetsand with 800 flat, then start over with the gold.
