    I recently painted my grill to match the BSP color of my truck. Problem is that I am just not getting the glossy look I want. I bought the paint from Napa Auto and then put about 5 coats of clear coat. Wet sanded and wax. it is still a flat color even though it matches. I didn't prime just used a plastic adhesion promoter. Any ideas on how I can get the glossy look?
