Painting Full Doors

Hi all! I recently traded my half doors on my Flame Red TJ for these Full doors that are white. I stripped them down to almost nothing, primed bare spots, scuffed, and painted with Dupli Color Perfect Match Spray for Chrysler Flame Red. I havent applied the clear coat yet so it still doesnt have that "pop" like my jeep paint has but how does it look so far? Any tips for applying clear coat? Ill also be using the duplicolor perfect match clear coat.

You might want to check with the specs on the paint,base coats are usualy recommended to clear coat within a 1/2 hour for best fusion..but some are supposed to be ok up to 24 hours.

Looks good from the photo!
