    It must of been covered up then by more clear as it wasn’t like that till I started cutting into it to level things off. I’m assuming to fix would be complete repaint of Dior etc?

    I should of just left it way I had it. But no have to keep trying to get it perfect. Mind you the cars almost 15 years old and has its share of little things here and there. I already repainted a fender that clear had totally started coming off and paint was flaking

I know car many years ago was in an accident front passenger side and maybe they painted that whole side after. Not sure.
    The natural finish is probably bad since they tried to fix it. Either that or the spray paint messed it up idk? The natural finish is probably messed up.

    Depends on the results your trying to achieve but paint is the best option if perfection is your goal.

    what would other option be? I’ve painted my fender and I did it while on car. Despite same color you can tell in sun it’s been painted looks not as dark plus there’s a line you can see through the 2k clear where I tried blending it in with back part of fender. Should of done entire fender....

    You can't paint a single panel and expect it to match without blending it in to the others. Only way to achieve the result you want is to blend in panel to the others.
