I'm back! With Results from reclear or repaint

I started a new topic since this is no longer a debate.
As I mentioned I was looking for a solution and went with repaint everything.
I did not need show room quality, I am not even doing great bodywork, I just wanted a decent looking 1 color car.
So I bought Eastwood Black Cherry Pearl 1 stage.
A new east wood spray gun.
I then sanded the back spoiler and hatch. (these were still original paint, these were NOT the duplicolor repaint places yet)
You can see a little of the sandpaper swirls since in my excitement to try out the new stuff I forgot to go over it with 80/120 so this was after knocking off the old paint with 60 then priming with filler and then 600 to smooth that out. But I do not mind. I think it still looks GREAT with 1 spray compared to the 2 stage I was trying to do.
These results were with 3 coats, and no cut/buff or anything, just let dry then snap pic....
*Thanks to everyone that offered an opinion. They were greatly appreciated

So finally sanding off all the dupli-color 2 stage green that was giving me fits....down to the fiberglass again..then more primer...
Results were fantastic. 4 coats of single stage ...These images were taken 2 hours after paint, looks as if I buffed already! Such a difference!
