try doing a quick clay bar on the area, then wax it, for light scratches it usually clears it out or make it noticeably less visible


That's just filling in the scratch with wax and fillers.

If you can catch a nail on the scratch it goes through the clear coat. You won't be able to get it all out but you can lessen the severity significantly. That stuff is very abrasive so don't go to town scrubbing with it for 5 minutes on the same spot. Give it about 30-40 swirls by hand and wipe it off, then see what you have.
