Am assuming you do not have a complete "body shop"
bench of various supplies so will give you the simplest of instructions with the minimum of products. First repair the spot to your liking. Second use some medium rubbing compound to rub the area at least a foot and a half all directions away from repair. Tjhis will etch it for good adhesion and also true up the color around it. Clean with good wax/grease remover/paint prep solvent and mask up. Mix your color and turn your gun down for low volume and low air. Get the primer covered first and then extend the next coats out further using a "fan-away stroke of the gun to make a gradual feather edge blend. Then clean out the gun and use just clear enamel reducer (assuming that is what type paint you have)and lightly dust over all painted area and out abt 6" farther. Dust it 'till it shines good. After dried for a few days rub it with some fine polish if needed to level up more. It will never be perfect. Even pros when spotting in will clear coat the whole panel. All depends on how fussy one is. Give it a try. Sometimes it's just as quick and better results to do the whole panel.
