I have a question about what to do when my project is all primed, painted, and clear coated. The clear coat was just finished, still wet, then accidentally fell! Two areas rubbed off down to the primer. The issue is the areas are spray painted using stencils . Parts of stenciled areas are down to primer, other parts are not. My question is , should I lightly sand those areas and try stenciling just the part messed up or do I stencil the whole stenciling area? This look is with 4 colors , called Tiger Stripes in camouflage technique. I apologize if I’m in the wrong site.. need help! Its a gift to my husband for his birthday, which is May 5th! Greatly appreciate any advice!!

I think that you would have gotten more responces if you had posted a couple of pictures …
Sorry for your disaster, When I have finish problems I usually sand and refinish the whole side that is damaged.
I assume that your stencils are overlay and spray.
You might try a spot of touchup first, and if it just looks like a sore thumb, sand and re do.

Here is a second vote for touch up – if it works, you are done. If not, well the other option was to redo the surface anyway…
