Paint came out pretty good ! I tried painting a car once. My compressor gave out so I gave up haha

yes my wife and my friends say looks good for acrylic.

i believe is all about the good quality thinners.
if you use muilti purpose or a cheap thinner you will loose a lot of gloss.
if you like polishing car every few weeks just to bring some gloss up them go ahead use cheap thinner.
acrylic is meant for everyone to use .you can spray it looking like crap them rubbe the fu.. out of it to buff it,
at the end of the day you will be happy with result once buffed it will look great but the ones that really do well
is the people selling the paint ,cause you be buying more materials them someone that knows what his doing.
i used 2 liters of color but i had some old blue paint on shelf i used as a base.
i used 3 liters of clear for whole car in and out
i used 4 liters thinners good thinners
soon i'll be doing a restoration on nissan.
yes it will be acrylic but it will be 3 layer pearl if anyone ever heard of it.
i have done some repairs on it already

Just commented on both your vids, they look great, outcome is awesome, but I would rather polish by hand.

some people buff the polish.
its useless cause you getting swell marks from buff.
best use by hand
there is another product called final finish 3M comes in black bottle
is meant to be buffed with dark grey pad i do have it.
very expensive i only use it on black cars comes out great but it still needs to be
hand polished with maguars polish .
the reason why it gets rid of swell marks is cause polish cutters are
coarser them other polishes ,you can only see under microscope .
