Thanks man, glad you like it. It’s getting me through lockdown peacefully.Wow. Just spent the last hour reading your thread. Cracking work. Definitely don't beat yourself up over the paint work, I've also had a go home spraying and mine came out the same dull effect. And mine was in the summer too.
Honestly mate I think that is a cracking job with a rattle can, certainly looks much better than what you started with! The clear is probably a little thin and that's why you're not getting the mirror shine, but you would struggle to get a good wet coat down on something of that size with a rattle can.And now for a job not well done. Not happy with the bumper at all, it hasn’t turned out great.
Lesson learned, don’t spray in a freezing garage with an electric heater. The paint just wouldn’t stick and is really thin.
Ah well, it’s back on and at least I can drive it again. I’ll be saving up for a new bumper and getting it professionally sprayed.
Also need new rear wheel arch liners as the mounting areas on mine are ruined and the bumpers a little warped so doesn’t fit very well 🙄

You have done a great job on the car. And as other people have mentioned, it is difficult to get a good finish with rattle cans. Especially metallic paint.Oh also I do have a couple of little jobs I can do before I go back so probably crack on next week with them.
Oil change/engine flush
Headlight bulb 😆 (I’ll make a 3 page in depth ‘how to’ to drag it out)
I have never used spray tint tbh. I would try the vinyl wrap tint first to see if i liked it. I don't think the spray tint can be removed once it has been applied.Anyone had any experience with smoke spray cans for lights?
