the roof looks a little rough from the side picture, is it just a bad picture?

Personally I like the top, not the front tho. I think the front looks tacky and rushed. Just my personal opinion tho, to each their own. Congrats on stepping out of the norm with the creativity. The paint looks like it was layered evenly. Doesnt look like it was cleared or waxed enough tho, unless youre going with a matte look.
