You also have to take into consideration how you are applying it. If you are using a paintbrush or somthing along those lines, it's never going be smooth because of the brissels. Real automotive paint is Sprayed on using a constant pressure rating. The only thing that i think would help would be like previously mentioned; paint it on and sand it a little so it's smooth and the paint again until it's all smooth and lastly use a spray can of clear coat. One other thing that will help the smoothness is to pick up a piece of 1000 grit sandpaper and lightly brush it on the entire thing, so the line where the clear coat stops is also smooth.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

"Remember have patience. Don't try to touch-up the chip all at once. It's a gradual building up of the paint, that's the trick. "

its not a 5 minute work, do a touch a day.
