Starting to fade and would like to catch it early. Can I fix or repair it?

If you use any type of abrasive youl make it even worse

Might just have to repaint it

The lighter 'white' edges of it could be cleaned up with polishing, but since it looks like you have actual all the way thru failure in some spots it would make other areas worse.

This is a case, honestly, of too far gone to fix.

Proper care and protection for it can possibly stop it from getting worse but best to have it "touched up"

Ill just have that fender touched up
That's a tough place for a "touch up" with it being on the crown (where your eyes focus on the body) and next to the hood, especially with that base color. It really depends on how "perfect" of repair you're looking for. If you don't get a good match... It will probably be a blend across the hood, L fender into both doors. How dose the rest of the paint look... scratches, dents or dings?

I would do a light polish to remove the milky white color of the oxidized clear and see if I could live with it until the truck needed paint. The CC is thin and is probably going to fail on other panels.
