My car got keyed

hey peeps,

i noticed a key mark on my left rear fender about 1ft long and it looks like its about through the clearcoat and possibly beneath the paint. it has rained on the car since the scratch, but i don't see any rust so i'm just hoping its not below the paint. i really apologize if this has been posted before but i did search the forum and couldn't find anything this specific. if anyone out there can give me some advice on a cheap way to fill up the scratch without spending like $500 or something, i'd really appreciate it.

i thought about touching it up, but then it'll appear uneven when looking at it from certain angles so i don't want to go that route. again, any help is greatly appreciated. if you need a picture of the scratch, i can send one over but its night right now so i can take one in the daylight and send it right over.

if you cover scratch with paint and clear coat in proper way and let it dry completely then use polish, wax to cover then you will be fine, I am not sure how much you know about detailing? if you have limited knowledge and experience then I would recommend going to professional detailer to get it fixed.
