    I parked on the street the other night, and came out to see these scratches on my ex. Looking for a way to fix these myself rather than taking it to a body shop. Will probably have to use touch up paint on some of it, looking for any advice on this.

    I am sure some detail guys will chime in for suggestions.

    For me, I try to use Meguiar's Cleaner Wax on scratches before looking for something more aggressive. Some scratches did take alot of elbow grease. I have even removed overspray with it.

    Megs ultimate compound and some elbow grease and that should come out. Great compound to have around for stuff like that and its cheap, throw some wax over it then to protect it.
