Thanks for all the great suggestions. I suppose do it yourself is a good way to go if it just costs me a few materials. If I fail I can always have the bodyshop fix it afterwards. I need some clarification on the procedure:

1 Fill scratches in with quality paint (not touch up crap), several layers.
2 sand/feather smooth the surrounding clear-coat ?? shot geberal area with clear??
~ what type of sand paper?
~ what type of clear coat? (does it come in a touch up pen)
~ what do you mean by "shot geberal area with clear?"


3 feather with very low grit paper and buff. Good as new.
~ what can I use to buff it?

Thanks so much for the help!
