Default And people say spray paint cant come out good

Here is what I did today on my girlfriends car. If you guys like it let me know and ill post up what I did in steps. Had a couple people already look at it and can't tell the difference between what got painted and stock. Her car is dirty so I can't wait to see it get all cleaned up once it drys up really good for the next couple of days. Here are the videos below.

Total supplies was around $50 dollars. Can't beat that when your on a budget.

Before: (wax and grease remover on a non primed surface. Surface taped and getting ready for paint)
Prepping before painting - YouTube

Finished results:
Painted Fender with spray can afterwards - YouTube

I can only tell that the painted panel us slightly less shiny but a quick buff and wax will take care of that. Excellent job. With proper preparation spray paint can look excellent.
