Spot repair question

I have a small dent in my front fender. this will be my first time doing a spot repair on a base coat clear coat system. From what I have read in this forum I understand that after I repair the dent and put the base coat down I need to clear the entire panel to avoid any problems with chemical staining etc. My question is do I re-coat the entire panel with the base coat also or just the area that is damaged and repaired? Thanks in advance. David

If you're an experienced painter you can spot just the repair and blend in the base on the surrounding area. However for someone who doesn't paint cars every day I would suggest shooting the entire panel with the base as well. Unless your paint job is pretty old and faded you should't be able to notice much of a difference.

That's the way I'd do it anyway.
