Hi guys I bought some touchup spray paint in the same colour as my car to fix a paint issue on the roof of the car. But now that I have repainted I can see where I have painted because the original colour is shinier than the repainted section how can I fix this issue??? Its really noticeable!!! Should I sand down with 1000 grit sandpaper on the new paint as cut and polish isnt making a difference!

hahaha I have peeled most of the paint off and I will redo it but only lightly and only the parts that need it. I get a bit carried away when it comes to painting!!! I have learnt from this mistake!

In the US most parts stores don't carry quality paint, you usually have to go an automotive paint supplier, like the place a body shop would buy their stuff.
