Some new paint & some buffing!

I finally got the project truck painted. Unfortunatley the paint didn't come out as good as I would have liked it. Usually I don't have to do much buffing but this time I either had to buff or repaint due to a few runs and orangepeel...#[email protected]%$#@

Yeah it has a lot of metallic. I have to pull the rest of the masking off in the morning so it can have a new windshield installed. Then I can see how well the ps matches. I didn't paint the whole door, but did clear it.
