2nd time painting

What do you guys think about painting over a previous paint job?
I've always stripped it first to be sure but if you know it was done right,
maybe even your own work,and it gets damaged months later,
like just a door, and you fix that door, would you strip the entire panel
in fear of to thick of a film build?
Or is it ok to spot your color and reclear the entire
panel over the existing clear (after sanding or scuffing)?

For normal work the general rule of thumb has been repaint once and than strip.

BUT! You did the last job and you know its right and I have done what you are about to do many times, "paint over it" The exception would be Fiberglass, SMC or a Vette.
