That sucks. I'd use a good buffing pad, and compound. Then I'd put some elbow in it. It's not going to go away completely but you can probably mask it up a bit. I'd maybe put a little touch up paint on to.

follow FX4's advice but some of those scratches appear to be too deep to repair without paint. they will be less noticeable but those need paint to be repaired completely

yeah those look a little deep to go completely away without major work. But at least they didn't write bitch or something in the paint

if I repair a scratch without painting one use a little 2000 to sand along scratch it cuts the edge off (be carefull not to burn)then buff with a compound and finish up with a glaze then wax. the deep parts that don't buff out fill with a T.U paint wait 24 hours come back in with 2000 sand flat and repeat buff.

Go to Autozone, VIP, Napa, Pep Boys anywhere that sells automotive stuff and give them your paint code. Usually they have a paint touch up pen in stock for like $6.00

Had that happen before, apparently my ex took Carrie Underwoods advice.

those look too deep to buff out.... if you run your fingernail across it and the scratch catches it.. it's too deep to polish out. but you'll need the following:
-paint
-2000 grit sand paper
-3000 grit sand paper (not necessary but helpful)
-machine compound (like Meguiar's M105)
-machine polish (like Meguiar's M205 or Mezerna SIP)

I would bend the sand paper in half and clean up the scratch with the paper (on the inside with the edge)

tape around it as close to the edge of the scratch as you can

start filling the scratch with a toothpick (dip toothpick into the bottle of paint and let gravity draw it into the scratch, that way you will get a nice even coat inside the scratch)

make a mound of paint higher then your existing paint

with tape still around the scratch (wait for paint to sure of course, you can use a blow drier/ heat gun to speed things up) sand that area down even with the top of the tape.

remove the tape

sand down CAREFULLY to even with the paint

buff with compound, then polish


if you are scared to machine polish, fill the scratch in with paint and then turn your toothpick to a side and smooth the glob of paint even with the top of the tape, wait to cure, and remove tape, it might be enough that it will be less noticeable. Dark paint is a little easier to help mask these imperfections

Motherfuckers!!!

They look really deep, that's a paint job to remove them!
Touching them in will make them look worse!

I'd let Carrie Underwood play with my baseball bat lol

Ditto. I don't get why people screw with other peoples cars or trucks. What did it do to you? You got a problem with me, take it out with me. Period. I'm a big boy. My truck is defenseless and didn't do anything that I didn't tell it to.

Rub in a little blood of the person who did that...Probably wont make it less noticable, but you will have more fun smashing the person's face in than you will have fixing it...Who knows, maybe they will have enough money in their wallet to get it fixed.

Piss any girls off lately? Hell has no fury like a woman scorned! Been there in my youth. My Mustange 5.0 paid dearly for it. Tough lesson. But I did learn and pay from the experience.

Not saying this is what happened to you, just what happened to me. It's not always the boys.

Sorry to see your truck like that. Hope it comes out allright for ya.

Cheers
