what you've done looks really good and i'd be happy with a shine like that, but mines silver and is a bit hard to get a decent reflection. Unless any one knows something that might help.......Dave?

Try einszett metallic polishwax followed by collinite 915 or p21s concours carnauba wax, even by hand difference will be very noticeable-use a terry cloth applicator rather than a sponge one though for the einszett as when using a polish sponge ones dont aggrivate the polish or are rough enough on the paint if ya like to smooth it as much-however use a sponge for the wax as you`use less product.

Einszetts 9.99

P21S around 20

Collinite 915 20-25 depending where from.

You could get by with the einzsett on its own to be fair its quite good for the money.
