Hey everyone, long time lurker here. I decided to paint my Fender Jazz using Reranch products. I just applied my first coat of clear yesterday. (This is over top of Reranch's vintage cream) All was looking great until closer inspection. I must have wiped the body with a linty rag prior to the first clear coat as there were many little tiny hairs. I took 800 grit wet sandpaper and sanded all the tiny hairs out. Most of the spots I sanded went through to the base coat.

I read around online for suggestions on what to do next. I couldn't find much info, so I figured I would apply a second layer of clear coat. I believe I made a big mistake as there is discoloration on every spot that was sanded. It looks like this:

So what would you guys recommend here? I've got another full can of vintage cream plus 4 cans of clear. I've got a bit of room for fixing this mistake, resource wise that is... I probably should have posted here before assuming the next step. Anyways I appreciate all input, thanks.

Just shoot another coat of color to cover, then continue with clear coats.

^^^^. Yeah, if you sanded into the color, it's always best to shoot another color coat or 2 to your liking then start the clear coats
