Fixing Scratches

Hey guys im new here, well some douche thought it would be funny to kick my car i guess and leave some scratches while i was in a Best Buy getting some stuff. Anyone know of some ways to fix them i have some touch up paint but was also thinking about using that thing called Quixx any suggestions.

That doesn't look too bad. From the looks of it, they just got your clear coat.

If the body mechanics charge you too much, all you need is a random orbit or angle polisher, some intensive polish, and finishing polish.

What actually might work is getting some rubbing compound and ScratchX. Rubbing compound will leave a scuff mark but it'll take away the bigger scratches. You'll use ScratchX to then cut down the scuff marks left by the rubbing compound.

If I were to fix that, I'd probably go with the rubbing compound first (since the long scratches are in a hard to polish area with the machine polish) and then finish up with a machine polish.
