It's not going to be easy, that's rough spray job over a poor surface.

Paint on these has got clear coat paint over it, like most cars now, so you can't just toss on color coat and blend it in.

Some fine wet emery cloth to sand the high spots smooth followed by polishing compound to smooth the scratches out can make it better. For a perfect job that paint would all need to be sanded off again to start from the beginning - sanding down the initial problem BEFORE painting at all.

Problem is you are spraying band new unfaded paint onto a car that has faded and been exposed to the weather.

Did you scuff the paint, wipe it will alcohol to clean it, primer it, then paint it? Also, you can't really do just a small area, you have to be able to blend it or you get the result you posted above.

Yeah, that colour looks way off, peeling paint is a pain to fix because you have to sand past he affected area , I would definitely take it to a body shop and see what they say

^^That reminds me, didn't think about it seeing that on the side.

Orange in particular but other colors as well can have trouble with sun fade and clear coat peeling. Usually seen on the top of the bumper first, but if that side parks toward the sun normally it can get it the same way.

I tend to forget it, but parking with the same side facing south all the time gets one side bad compared to the other.
