If its not completely through the clear coat, you may be able to get a lot of it out with a DA buffer with some foam pads and some professional grade compounds.

pics? it's hard to assess since this type of hing could be an easy buff out to a complete repaint depending on a slew of variables.

There are typically two types of damage that can result from being "egged". Tiny chips (typically in a radial pattern at the impact point) from the shell breaking upon impact and chemical etching/hazing/staining of the finish from contents.

You can try using an OTC product like Meguiars Ultimate Compound and/or Swirl-X to see if you can remove (if not improve) the appearance of the affected area. Start with the Swirl-X first and then move up to the UC if needed (following up with the Swirl-X again to remove any of the fine marring left by the UC). How correctable your problem is will really depend on the extent of damage though.
