    You could try Meguiars Scratch-X it works real well on small scratches. But if its to bad you'll probably just need some touch up paint. I really woundnt reccomend doing the touch up yourself though without alot of practice. See if you cant find the touch up paint you need at Wal-mart or some auto store (if not you'll have to find a place to mix it for you) then go to a paint and body shop. Or even a professional detailer.

    If you want to try it yourself heres what I'd do after getting the touch up paint.

    1. Clean area to be free of any wax or polish.

    2. Apply the paint in layers (very light coats) with a very fine tipped brush.

    3. Build up the coats tillthe scratch is filled.

    4. Let dry overnight.

    5. Buff and wax
