Looks very good in that pic!

If you clear it (or if you don't) you can wet sand it and get a near perfect finnish. I can post instructions if you are interested, a good bit of work, but it looks very good when complete.

Eh, turtle wax beads too irratically, the beading isn't tight beading, it's all spread out and everywhere. I use synthetic wax. Nice and small, tight beads.

Did you roll it or spray it?

I have seen some really nice roller jobs, but it's probably sprayed more often.

Did you thin it before you applied the paint?

My Honda is getting the rustoleum treatment before winter. Doing all the body work now. Someone did a halfa$$ job on it before I got it. Overspray everywhere, bumper, trim, windows, name it...it's got paint on it.
