It looks like a body shop painted it. Perfect color match and everything. For something like a lip, skirt or wing, I don't see why some people would hate since there's not a lot of surface area to be sprayed. But as for painting a whole car, rattle cans ftl! Lol.

nice, im painting my side skirts when i get the chance, only thing that bugs me is color matching it. idk what u did but can you take the Color code off the inside part of the car and try to color match it in a rattle can at autozone. or Honda paint ftl?

my lip has not even a 2 finger gap off the ground and is chipped everywhere :( It's almost worth having no lip.

Pretty good for rattle can. Seen actual paint jobs that look like true rattle can jobs. Yours looks like nothing of the sort, clean and smooth.
