Pulling tape goof up

Hey guys I need a little info on fixing a little spot no bigger than a quarter. I was untaping my truck I sprayed a few days ago and I kind of streched over the fender and keept pullin the tape frong along the windshield and about right in the center I pulled some of the clear off. I stopped pulling got my knife and trimmed it. Then I went on the other side and pulled the tape off from that side. Can I just feather edge the spot down and spray a couple coats over that spot or do I have do the whole cowl panel in front of the windshield. It is only about 6 or 8 inches wide and 4 foot long. Thanks for any help. Ron

Do you mean the panel is 6x4 or what you pulled off is? To be done right you should sand, spot your color and reclear the complete panel. I have taken a small paint brush and filled the spot where the clear came off with clear. Then color sand oh so gently and buffed. Works about 50% of the time. But what have you got to loose.If it dosen't work you have to repaint which is what you had to do anyway.

That is exactly what I did I sanded the spot, a little too much though, I went through to the primer on a spot about as big as a nickel. Next I sanded about 3 to 4 inches each side of that to get the clear off in that area. I taped everything off except the 6 to 8 inch by 1&1/2 inch area and I base coated this area. Next day, yesterday, I wet sanded with 1500 the whole cowiling panel in front of the windshield along with the bad spot. I blended it all in nice, then I clear coated it with 2 coats of SPI. Man that section looks real good.Last night I used a razor knife and untaped everything. I know how to get stunning finish now. 2 coats of SPI clear wait a couple days wet sand with 1500 then 2 more coats of SPI. That SPI clear is the way to go.

100% agree on the spi. Berry makes one heck of a product. If you want a nice finish wet sanding and re clearing does help a lot. Adds depth to the paint to.

the two coat ,sand ,then two more system is hard to beat but 1,500 is for buffers 6oo is what painters use ...Not only are you taking a big chance with your clear coming off ,it takes way too long to get it sanded....good choice in clear
