But i could have done better

Depends on where the orange peel is. From the picture showing pre-clearcoat, I'm guessing there is a lot of orange peel in the base color, so even if you flatten out the clear it will still have an orange peel look.

One thought if you do it again, is to wet sand the color after you get a good base of a couple coats. Then spray one or two more coats and keep them thin so you don't get the orange peel again. Orange peel is from putting it on too thick. Then start layering the clear.

Not too bad for a spray bomb job though.

The temp outside also has alot to do with how the paint cures. It would help to have the car inside somewhere, but you can also plug in a flood light/heat lamp while it is curing.

Another helpful hint: to get more pressure, and a finer mist out of the can, put them in *slightly hot* water first. This will build up pressure inside the can, and get you a finer coat.

The paint will need to cure for about a week before you can sand it down to get OP out of it. Start with 1000 grit wet, then 1500. Add your clear, let it set for a week, and do the same...but this time, finish up with 2000 grit wet, then polish.
