Easiest way is to get some wet/dry sandpaper.....sand it off and spray a light coat of clear.

When you guys remove the finish from your carbon parts, how are you re-clearing them?

Specifically, what products are you using and how are you spraying them? How is the quality of the finished product?

I used a scuff pad (red) color then i used minwax polyurethane spray and lay down 3 coats scuffing lightly between each coat. After all was dry (24hr) i sanded lightly with 900 grit then buffed using car rubbing compound followed by car polish; lastly wax.
