Nah its just too shiny. Polish it all up and clean it and put a high temp clear over. Should keep it shiny for longer so I've heard.
Anyone clarify

Just a thought, have you thought about using a cloth wheel and polishing compounds?

After what you've done or after using 200 & 400 grit emery. Use the cloth wheel & polishing compound will actually make the surface mirror like.

Doing this should mean you can get away with a clear coat.

PS What you've done already looks good!
