Nasty paint chip repair

So I'm about to begin my summer detail and was debating the best course of action on this nasty little chip. It's about a quarter of an inch in size and still chipping/lifting in the lower right corner. I plan to carefully remove that and then fill the chip.

Still debating whether to treat it like a normal stone chip, ie fill with touch up, clear, and level but I'm concerned it will look awful given how large it is.

I also have some leftover oem paint in a spray can so I was contemplating taping off the surrounding area and spraying the chip to give a more level finish.

Is this a bad idea? Anyone successfully repair a chip this large before? Any advise is appreciated thx
