Either lose the red completely, or bring it over to meet the blue and follow it down the nose

Any advantage to matte or semi gloss rather than gloss white?
I would go with a semi-gloss so you don't have a lot of reflections to show where the bad body work is.
If you go too flat, then it just looks like a bad paint job that doesn't shine
