That looks good. Can you really wet sand that? I would guess that the hammered paint left a texture to the finish, therefore wet sanding would only knock the top off the highest portion of the texture. Or, did you lay on enough clear that the surface is now smooth?
The stickers finish it off nicely. I hope they hold up well with the clear. Often times stickers look good until they age a bit and start to come off, but you got that one covered.
