Can this be fixed?

I'm guessing not .

I removed the spoiler to re-tape it and I accidentally stepped on it. I can't believe I'm so dumb
(i put it on the ground while I cleaned the excess tape from the car)

Actually, I reckon it can be.

I got a Diffuser off eBay about 18 months back and it arrived with a big spiderweb crack in the clear coat.

Shipping it back to the seller was RIDICULOUSLY expensive so I took it to a guy who does fibreglass stuff on/for boats.

He sanded the clear coat back and then "filled" it in and polished it up.

Perfect.

Damn! It shouldn't pose a problem. Doesn't look to be cracked 'that' bad. But it sure would annoy me!

Like Harlequin said.. you would need to sand it and fill it in somehow. But unless you know what your doing I wouldn't go willy nilly and start to sand. Looks like your best bet would be to tape that section off and wet sand the area being careful to just remove the clear coat of that area and not to fray the CF. Then re - resin the area. Use 100/600/1000 sand paper then polish compound.
