Buffing issues...

So I've got a silver BMW... washed, used CG M-seal... buffed until blue in the face, had wife look at car to inspect, posted new detail pics on the forum, everything looked good...

Then it rained, and all of a sudden several areas that appeared to be unbuffed sealant popped up... so I buffed again, my wife and a buddy both looked at the car, apparently nothing left to buff off...

Then I did a quick wash yesterday, and used FK1 425, wife inspected, lots of ohhs and ahhs... all was well in my world. Then today more unbuffed looking sealant spots pop up, like dried wax on the car that just never got buffed off...

Is this normal? Any tips to prevent?

Pics? I dont understand how that could of happened unless you didnt let the sealer either A seal right or B didnt put enough on.

I am not a professional though.

Missing a few spots of sealant happens to me from time to time. Seems like I always miss a few spots on the bumpers. Sometimes, if the light isn't right, you don't see it. Once you buff it off, you should be fine. It is not normal for it to "keep coming back"!
