The blue stripes look ok; but with the red stopping at the edge of the hood, it looks like you've re-painted the hood and haven't finished re-doing the stripes.
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
