We are going to need some pictures. Every scratch requires a different technique. Are they past your clear coat? How about the primer? Are the into metal? Just swirls? We would have to see what you are talking about first. Swirls are simple. A day or two and you can make her look gorgeous. If they are deeper, you may need to wet sand. Into the metal, you are talking about rust treatment, touchup, and wet sanding if you choose to use touch up paint. But post some pics so we know exactly what you are dealing with.

They are all over the car, but I don't think they are past the clear coat.

Without pictures am going to assume they are either swirls or scratches from using a car wash. In either case, you are going to have to work them out. I suggest you just use the PC and the pads/products from Adams. Excellent stuff, excellent service. You really can not screw it up. Again, without pictures, this information is generic without me actually seeing the damage.

if light scratches get some compound and hand rub them out if that dont work get a buffer that u can use or get someone that can. if they are to deep u may have to fill them and then 1000 grit sand then 1500 then buff , if that dont work u need to have it painted.
without pics that best i can tell u
