Buffed My Painted Trim Piece, Whatcha Think?

Thought I'd share with you guys I painted my trim center stack and it looked dull (like it was obvious I sprayed it haha), so anyways, I bought some clear automotive clear coat, wet sand and cut polish and took my rotary buffer to it . Never buffed plastics before on such an odd shape but I think it turned out Great, whatcha'all think?

That looks pretty good. I am thinking of possibly painting some of the interior trim to match the exterior paint. It's scratched and chipped up, and generally cheap-looking lol. What you did came out looking rather nice, might I ask what type of paint you used?
