It is the look I was going for, I didn't want a polished finish and wanted something that looked more utilitarian and like it would eat small children and animals that crossed its path

It is really funny when the car is at shows and people touch the paint.. they can't resist it and then go crazy over it calling their friends to come and check it out.

Anyone who has seen the paint in person have given me nothing but compliments. Car show judges love it and people at shows ask me if I would do the same for their cars if they pay me to do it..

It's not everyone's cup of tea..... But I absolutely love it

Yeah, I'm not knocking the concept, but it's just plain impossible, no matter how skilled you are, to get paint on evenly with a rattle can... the hood in particular from some angles looks kinda funky. I think as a "last step" it would be worth it to get your hands on some of the paint in bulk quantity, and either get a good gun or have somebody shoot it for you.
