I can't tell how big this is, but if is bigger than a pencil eraser, then you need to use a spray can.

damn, i was afraid you would say that.
so would i sand the area down using really fine ssanpaper, then maybe wet sand? 1 light coat, then 2 thinck ones, then a coat or 2 of clear coat?

You are going to want to pick a place to spray the clearcoat too. So I would scuff a much larger area so you can spray clearcoat about a foot wider than the repair, preferably to an edge. See http://www.paintscratch.com/blend.htm. Also, I would scuff about six inches more on either side so when you spray the primer and basecoat, it will adhere properly.

Can you take more pictures? Perhaps from different angles? Looks excellent.
