I sanded/polished/clearcoated it, and it's looking pretty decent. The clearcoat did go on like crap, I wouldn't recommend this stuff. But I think a nice abrasive polishing will smooth it out well.
One thing I did notice, once I applied the clearcoat, the touched up area looked lighter then the original. Didn't seem like this was the case before the coat. Oh well, let's see how it looks once it's dried
