Default Does scratch remover work?

2014 Ram, 1500 miles on it *sigh*

We were 90% of the way to mom & dad's in Massachusetts when we crossed paths with a truck hauling scrap metal stuff. Something fell out of that truck's cargo and bounced off the road, glancing off the hood. We don't know how bad things really are till we get the truck home and wash it off, but from what I can tell quickly we have some light scratches right in the middle of the hood. I don't think the metal's affected and I am hoping the scratches are only in the clear coat.

So the next question is, how to tackle it? Take it to a shop or deal with it myself? I have a lot of cleaners from quick detailer to clay bar to bug & tar remover to polishing compound, just not sure how gritty will be too gritty for the task at hand.

I'll have to post some pics once I get the thing home and clean so you can feel my pain.
