You can get pretty decent results with a rattle can when done right. Did you shake it up thoroughly? Also even spraying at the same distance is a must while moving at a steady pace. Don't do it all in one coat. The black looks like it's coming through a bit. Sand, prime, and repaint. Did you just spray over the black? Practice on a cardboard if you can.
