it caused the paint to run in some places and was just a overall crappy finish, even after sanding and buffing,

sounds like the basecoat wasn't fully cured. It's happened to me before.

Humidity and temperature play a large role in paint jobs, especially spray bomb jobs.

Car paint is pricey and requires special equipment.

Totally agree, also forget spray cans on big stuff. Im just home from spraying the JD mower deck yellow with cans. It was a pain, like theres not enough flow. I regret i choose cans. Oh well.

And nice blue you found, bet thats sexy with white.
