If it's peeling away, there is nothing you can do for it.

. How much do you think a shop would want to re clear my fenders? Would it be hard to match black?

Yeah, most of the time they can match it. Price would depend on how good of a job you're wanting. Quality=$$

The clear coat is peeling because of the lack of adhesion to the basecoat, there are several reasons this happens;
1) Basecoat was over cured or too much time between BC/CC
2) Different system used for BC to CC

Not much you can do, if you don't have the $$$ to repair the fenders, you can feather the peeling edges with 800 to 1000 grit wet/dry paper and shoot some DuPont Door Jamb CC in an aerisol can from Metro Color, I believe it will give you a quick fix because it's usually $200.00 to $250.00 to repaint most panels...'Henry

Thanks Henry. Even if that doest look as good as a professional shop, it still looks better than peeling CC. Its a Daily anyways so it doesnt need to be perfect.
