Clear coat paint matching

A couple of days ago I found a spray can of clear coat on the shelf left over from some project...

my rear bumper has taken a few nasty bumps and scrapes from other cars and I believe a snowblower that got a bit close, and left their mark. I did a picture thing about buffing the scratches out using a leftover headlight repair kit. It did end up going through the clear coat and left a slightly dull spot that looked ok if it was kept clean and waxed.

I decided to clean the wax off and try the clear spray just to see how it looked. It came out so nice I tried spraying some curb rash on the front corner. That also came out great! It filled the scratches and left a nice shine. ( molded in Black body) pictures to follow.
