When detaileing a new to me Porsche 993 I found fish eye on a rear quarter panel. I used 2500 wet sandpaper to try and sand it out and bingo...I went through the clear.  I now am thinking of using your spray can clear to re-clear the 1" diameter spot. What would be the best approach.
If this doesn't work I'll take it to a professional and have the entire panel re-done.

You really should apply some basecoat to the area where you went through and then use clear over that as this is the correct way to do it. I have never just sprayed clear by itself as you will not get a nice finish.

So I should rough up the surface around the damaged area (say 4-5") with 800 grit, blend in some basecoat, let it set up, and then spray clear over it?
I'm afraid of using 800 on the spot itself as I don't want to get to the primer if at all possible.

Would you mask it off, use the spray through the hole technique or just "do it".

Yes, scuff the area. I would not mask it off, just spray to a  panel so you don't leave a clearcoat edge in the middle of a panel.
