They might be able to re clear your whole bumper, but that's all you can do, repaint or re clear it Anything less is half ***'ed

Best bet is to re-paint.

Doesn't matter how bad it is! It started and it will spread

Yeah i know i can get it repainted but any estimates on how much? Its just a clear coat paint job right? I work at advance auto parts and a co-worker recommended to paint it over with a clear coat spray paint we sell then sand it down with some fine wet sandpaper. Will it work?

Yes, but might not look really good, but probably look better then it does now

Actually it's like blending you'll have to feather out the edges of your clear on there now with se 1000 grit or it will bubble off and still a good chance you'll notice the difference but yes that's a quick fix as long as you wet sand it down final clear coat down with some 1500 grit got to be care full and then you'll have to high speed orbital bill the area or it will never shine right .. Best bet is to get the whole bumper re cleared depending on shop labor rate 100-300
