Default Got some scratches in my paint :(

Well the other day my friend jumped out of my truck, and his keys went down the side of my paint and scratched it.

Not good. What is best to fix scratches. Some are deep scratches. I know that 2 in 1 scratch paint you can buy at Pepboys or most automotive places has a primer and paint, is that good enough for the job?

i have a problem with that...only because my truck is 2wd...not lifted...no offroad tires...yet!

if i had that stuff then i would agree, but also i still owe over $8K on this truck and i wanna make it last...
