Thanks for all the help!
I think acetone is part of your problem. AFAIK, extended exposure to acetone will soften the clear coat to the point where it will begin to rub off. You may have damaged the clear coat.

I know this sounds crazy but you would have been better off using a razor blade to gently scrape it off and then lightly buff the clear coat, similar to how runs are removed from fresh clear coat.
