Anyone know the best way to touch up the clear coat? I've a few spots where it's flaked around a stone chip, and a touch up brush won't hack it (without it looking a mess)!

Give a smart repairer a call or speak to your local body shop

Clearcoat repairs usually require stripping of alot of the paint around it, high build priming and complete panel repainting.

I own a bodyshop and I have seen some of these not so smart repairs leave a car in a dreadfull state. I have only seen a few that I actually thought were good.

Depending how big the areas are you coukd try and use some 2k clearcoat (lacquer that requires a hardener) and apply it around where its peeling with a ****tail stick to bond it down.

You can then build up to the level by applying more clearcoat.

Leave this to dry until the next day, then use some p1200 on a flexible block and cut it back to the level of the original paint. Then use some p2000 because conpounding will be easier.

Its the best youre gonna do without repainting the panel unfortunately.

Avoid mobile smart repairers, Iíve not seen that many who are actually any good.
