Finished marble/wrinkle paint effect using rattle cans

I said I would update you guys on the progress of my paint job. I put the last 3 coats of clearcoat on my tailgate yesterday with amazing results. What would have been ~$3000 paint job will now be only $350 using rattle cans. The pics are below in progression from left to right.

Lemme know what you think!
