In your case, the clear bra makes spraying it a lot more difficult. Maybe try one of these?

I used an aerosol can from this place to color match my TRD style spoiler and it's a perfect match.
I ran into a tablesaw in my garage and gashed my bumper much worse than that. Used the automotivetouchup aerosal. And it came out perfect too. Just make sure to prepare the surface properly. Any imperfections will be magnified when you apply the clear coat.

silver is somewhat easier, the light color lends itself to blending a lot more than dark metallic blue.

I`ve been (was) a spraypainter for 40yrs and silver is in the top few of hardest to blend, dark colors quite often don`t need blending and are easier to blend if needed. But the damage being ankle height it`s hard to see all different angles and lighting so almost anything goes.

Alright... so I just went around to two body shops in the area for some estimates. They both said a full all-out repair would be around $1500. The extra $500 would be the labor involved in removing/replacing the PPF. The first shop suggest I just DIY with touch up paint. The second had a more tempting alternative choice: around $50 for them to wet sand the area smooth and they will just brush touch-up paint for some 70% (per the shop guy) back to normal. Or I can just have them prep that surface smooth for me and I can aerosol spray it myself at home.

You actually might be on to something there! Like a decal or auto wrap! That would be feasible but I think the damaged area would still "imprint" onto whatever is covering it because of the uneven surface. Hmm... maybe i'll just put some blue painter's tape over the scuff and call it a day haha

If they were any good they would wizz the damage, light prime, 3000 the side of the bar , blow it in and a light buff to finish for $200. Oh and you won`t pick it, again if they are any good!
That`s what I would do at work 1/2 an hours work and $200 cash in pocket
edit.. I did not say you could do it in half an hour, its half an hours work plus some drying time.
