Looks pretty good in this light! [;)] Always a challenge to match the paint color, but it looks like you came out darn close. If you want to blend in the tape lines to the other paint, you might try using Meguiar's Professional Ultra-Cut Compound #105, followed up by Meguiar's Ultra Finishing Polish #205. I use the #105 on my paint (Acrylic Urethane Single Stage) after wet sanding with 2000 wet/dry sandpaper. Pretty amazing stuff. Just aggressive enough to remove the sanding marks and light paint defects w/o eating thru the paint. Leaves an ultra smooth and high gloss finish. [:p] At least for me it does. Your mileage may vary. You can get both at auto body supply paint stores (you'll pay auto body prices !), Amazon or on E-Bay. I got the better deals on E-Bay.
