308 GT4 paint touch up...

On the down sloping part at the back of my car (see picture), the sharp edge over the recess that follows on from the back windscreen the paint has been rubbed away a little - probably due to overenthusiastic polishing, by a previous owner.

Does anyone have any advice on the best way to spray over this, does it require the whole pannel to be resprayed?

Hard to tell from that photo. You probably ought to go to an automotive detailing shop, or a good body and paint shop and have them look at it.

Since your car looks great another thing to consider is - are you the only one who notices this rub through? There is a bunch of stuff wrong with the paint on my car, couple of rust bubbles, stone chips and scrapes on the front, couple of other paint chips here and there, there is even "orange peel" on the passenger side door from a poorly done re-spray. I could spend an hour showing you all the imperfections in my paint; however, I'm the only one who sees it. Everyone else thinks it is a brand new car and is impressed. So I just stopped worrying about it and keep it as clean and shiney as I can. Someday I am going to have the entire car re-spayed.

Considering that GT4's were never treated with anti-corrosion protection, it would be a good idea to have the area painted. That is one of the most difficult areas to paint on a GT4, so it'll be costly, but choose a good shop to do the work. It'll be worse if the job is done cheaply.
