Can you remove scratches from behind door handle?

I have a couple scratches from opening the driver door and was wondering if they can be removed? I have zaino on the way. Will this remove them? I ordered the polish

So do I. With CA I'm always putting my hand into the space between handle and the body panel. My wedding ring hits the bottle panel every once in a while and leaves a scratch.. They are too deep to be filled with Z5, and in a place I can't reach with the PC. So my plan is to use some ScratchX by hand with a cutting pad style hand applicator...

Maybe I could use this as an excuss to not wear my wedding ring... Wonder how that would go over with the wife..

Maybe you can find in the US something like this:

(Or maybe you can order it from Uk)

Mother's makes the same thing called the PowerBall. They now have a PowerBall Mini that would probably fit right where you need it to go. They attach to a drill and it works like a circular 3D buffer ball.

Although your hand approach may just do it too.
