Default Rattle can paint matching

Got some Grimmspeed WRB rattle can spray off Ebay because i didnt want to spend 250+ on a professional job.... I used a coat of adhesion promoter, Grimmspeed paint and then a coat of high gloss clear coat.









Lighting was bad so they look really dark


And then...

Wow that turned out really good!

For some reason though your car looks...naked. Probably the lack of badging?
Maybe I'm just used to my friends' wagons. All of them have the STi stickers on the doors.

Do you recommend attempting to do this on the body panels of a car? I've got some wispy/swirly marks on the front right fender of my 2013 WRB, but I just can't find a way to get rid of them

The Subaru touch up paint from the dealership is WAY too dark...

I am actually thinking about doing my front bumper because the clear coats coming off and theres a bunch of rock chips. If you do look very close it does have a slightly different texture and it may be from the clear coat. They sell high grade 1k automotive clear coat online. It may do a better job than the suff i used. The factory paint looks like it has little reflective flakes in it and you dont get that with the Grimmspeed paint in the can. Id recommend trying it out on some add on parts because its hard to describe. The color tone is pretty stop on though
