A little help...paint question

Well like a dumass I used some "goof off" to help remove the little warning sticker on the tank below the gas cap trim. It did NOT want to just peel off. I had to rub and pick away with my fingernail. When I was done, I noticed the area was kind of faded. Apparently I took some of the clearcoat off. If you rub some oil on it, the faded area vanishes....so it looks like the paint is ok. How do I fix this? Can a paint shop just touch up an area or would the whole tank have to be redone?

MacGuire's Ultra Compound. Go buy some. This stuff is awesome.

I had the same issue when I removed the clear "protection" stickers on the rear fender under the seat.

Just put a bit on a damp micro-fibre cloth and start rubbing. You can also use it with a buffer, but I didn't have one. I'd then follow up with a coat of wax.

I guarantee this is all a bodyshop will do and probably charge you $200 to do it.
I'm telling you dude, get some rubbing compound like the Macguire's I mentioned earlier.
