On Saturday I worked on an 80s pickup with single stage metallic paint. I had read on here previously that SS metallic can be hard to get to look right because of the metal flake. I clayed the hood, used 105 on wool for 3 passes then used M80 on rotary and by hand. Here are some pics of how it turned out. From the side of the truck it looks great, but looking at the truck head-on you can see how it just doesn't look quite right. Any ideas on to make this look better or what could be done differently?
Here you can see what looks like some runs, faded area and some high and low spots.
