    For light scratches, you can polish them out, but if they are into the primer, there really isn't anything you can do short of repainting.

    Look in the yellow pages in the automotive section for cratch repairs. These are guys doing great repairs with airbrushes. Much cheaper than bodyshops.

    Make sure you get recommendations, though. They need to be fully competent with primering, base and clear coat. Some colors need the exact same color primer as the factory uses to make the base coat match, due to the transparency of the paint.
