hmm... rough? what was it you painted? accents like the radio bezel, door handle bezels, etc? or did you do a full interior color change?

did you sand the part smooth? wetsand? colorcoat? clearcoat?

the roughness sounds like you have an overspray problem... hold the can closer and if you are outside, notice the way the breeze is blowing (that way as you spray, spray with the breeze as it will get overspray on the part you havent painted yet and work your way to that side)... that probably made no sense, but I cant explain it any better...

try some rubbing compound after you spray. that will make it smoother.

Spray several layers of clear coat over it. Use acylic enamel clear if you used enamel paint, lacquer clear if you used lacquer spray. wetsand with 2000 grit sandpaper. Keep checking the paper to make sure only white is coming off. This means you haven't sanded off the clear and got into the paint. Finish with a polishing compound.
