in the pics it kinda looks like its just stained from the glue especially on the mirror.

can you get a finger nail under it

it most certainly does not look like damage from a pressure washer.

the glue may have had a chemical reaction or the clear was bad in this area to begin with.

damage from a pressure washer would look more like someone took the paint off with a putty knife

Yeah, I can get my fingernail under it

It's not staining, The clear has definitely come off
It took my ages to get pictures that good (??) - It's not easy taking pics on a black car

Ok guys,

I went to another shop today

They were far more helpful than the last place
The guy spent quite a bit of his time with me answering all my questions

From what I could make out he said there were really only two options to consider

First option.....
Scuff the entire panel,
Base coat the entire panel,
Clear coat the entire panel

Second option.....
Scuff the entire panel
Apply base coat in a patch to the damaged area
Clear coat the entire panel

My brain tells me the first option is clearly the best solution as far as a 'complete job' is concerned

Is the second option even a consideration, or is it just too much of a bodge job?

Also - Dave, you mentioned the factory clear is applied only just thick enough to give a shine

Since I'll be having the front bumper sprayed, would it be an option to have the entire car sanded, and have a couple of coats of clear applied?

Would this give a 'better' finish
Would it look any better, or get rid of the very slight orange peel?
Or would it be a stupid idea?

Thanks again everyone
