What would I know? I've only been doing it for 20+ years.
I've never seen or heard of anyone doing that. If you break through the clear you have no choice but to use colour. If its not through the clear you can polish it. Even if you could / would re clear it. It would cost alot more than $1000 no matter where you are. (by any decent shop) There would be very little difference in price as the prep and dis assembly of the vehicle is pretty much the same which is probably the main reason its never done. Also any imperfection would be magnified by the additional clearcoat making the truck look worse not better.
