reconditioned wheel help

I curbed my rear wheel a while ago and had it fixed by the dealer abour a year ago. I thought the guy did a great job it looked good but recently I was able to clean my wheels(Jersey weather hasnt been good) and noticed that there are lines where it looks like he sprayed the paint. Can anyone give suggestions as to what to do here? Can I use a powerball type pad with light paint polish or get it re-done?Name:  WP_000005.jpg

That repair needs to be re-accomplished. The lines you see are cracks in the paint/clear coat and there is also peeling of the clear coat on the spoke. You can also see where the wheel was damaged as their repair did not match the original contour of the wheel.

Shoddy workmanship at best there.

Thanks for the response. What do you think should I try hunting down a different wheel or get this one done again? I don't know of places in NJ that do this kind of work so if any one can recommend a spot I would greatly appreciate it.
