Waves in the clear coat?

I have an older Lo Pro 7VSBL I bought a few months back. And it's almost flawless by way of chips and such. But it looks as though there are slight waves or something in the clear coat.

It's pretty hard to see under normal light, but it's definitely there.

Is this something to worry about? Is there anything to be done? The blue sparkle paint seems fine underneath.

Re: Waves in the clear coat?

i have some that look like lines in the clear where the body was glued.
waves is from the initial finishing though.

you can wetsand it with 1500 until its all flat and then re buff it.
pics?

I don't have a decent digital camera so I don't know that I could get it to show in any pics.
