Once the clear coat is faded, peeled or in any way separated from the basecoat it is time for a respray. you can't simply respray clear over the base. the best way to correct it is scuff up the affect area, mask off and color blend the "spot", of course re clear. From there it is sanding, compounding and glazing. As far as finding paint in any quantity go to your local jobber, mine is Albert Kemperle and they'll be able to find your paint. This is not a cheap or easy process if you have no auto body experience

I'd look into having the part/outer body resprayed, if its within budget. Usually if one spot is bubbling, more will be showing up before long.

Once the clear delaminates from the base coat, new base coat needs to be sprayed along with the clear.
