To fix minor scratches in your paint, get some rubbing compound, some coarse stuff or some or medium grit. Then get a nice smooth rag and little bit on the rag. Take the rubbing compound and the cloth and rub it with firm pressure and as you're going, make sure you don't rub it too hard or too long because it will burn through your paint depending on how thick your clear coat is. Just go over it for a little bit and feel it. So now all the scratches in that area are all gone now all the paint there is smooth again. And It'll be a little bit of a haze so if you want you can always get some a glaze of kind of a polish type thing use it step afterwards and go and rub that on there. And it gets the haze out and all the paint is smooth. Like new again.
