If you sanded the clear coat, the color should stick just fine.
One of the issues with rattle cans is the coverage isn't near what it is out of a spray gun. The coats are thinner, therefore two or three coats of clear are very easy to sand through.

Great thanks - the paint job is getting a LOT better after sanding down the previous rough base coat surface.
I'm getting a hang of using the spray can now (spray close to the surface).
I've also just learnt that I shouldn't really touch the surface for at least more than an hour or perhaps longer after I've put on a good two layers of clear. I briefly touched the clearcoat around an hour time after application and my fingerprint was clearly marked on the clearcoat.
Thanks everyone for the help.
Base coat in a can?
I never heard of that.
Is this really base coat or just normal spray paint in a can?
(It's not custom painting-it's custom sanding)
