That doesnt look very smooth at all mate. Did you sand it properly?

Matches your bumper though :lol:

its stunning but the under side of the shell i have had to re sand down and in the middle of primering it again to start the rubbing down all over
there was lines showing through on the first coat of paint
so rather than making it look worse i decided to re do it
