I'm looking at a used SC400 Overall I like the car alot, but there is one part that concerns me. It has been repainted once, though it seems like its a nice shiny finish there are a few rock chips that are small and I should be able to repair fine. The problem is one spot behind the driver's side door, under the small rear window. I don't know if it started from a scratch, chip or what but the newer paint is basically gone in a spot about 1/4-3/8ths by like an inch. The edges of this spot are irregular, like it's been increasing in size. It's not that noticable from a distance because the car was just repainted a lighter silver than before, but it looks bad up close. I don't know much about car paint, other than what I've read about touch up paint in the last few days. Basically I want to know if this would require a repaint of the whole panel, or if it could be repainted just around that spot by a professional, or if coats of touch up paint + wetsanding +polishing etc will make it look ok. I don't need perfection, but making as unnoticable as possible would be good.(and budget is important) The car btw is a 95 with black leather interior and the newer paint is Ice blue(silver) from the Lexus RX300s. Thanks for any help.
