What kind of gun are you using and what size tip and air cap...when it comes to painting there are so many variables...some people feel that if the product they are painting is thick, they need a big tip and air cap like a 1.6 or 1.8...that is the wrong way to think...the thicker the product the smaller the air cap and fluid needle is what is needed to make the product lay down flat and smooth...with a smaller set up, the material goes on finer and has a flatter finish. with a larger set up 1.6 to 1.8 the material is being put on the vehicle like a garden hose...let it sit over night, not much you can do tonight to fix the morning when it has set up a bit more, take it outside and see what you've got...inside lighting can be the most critical lighting to look at has shadows and shows every imperfection as natural light is much more forgiving.

After you look at it tomorrow, let me know, you can PM if you like.
