toyota solara scratches

i recently realized that there are a few small scratches (not really deep) that look like key scratches. i park it in the school parking lot so that is possible. i was wondering if anyone could give me steps to touching them up so that i prevent rust and so that they are innoticable as possible.
thank you

use that to fill the scratches after using a wire core pencil brush to remove any rust dirt etc. Then use a touch up paint. POR rules!

Hope this helps-Josh

try some GS 27 Scratch remover available at most stores handling automotive products. I have had great luck with that.
On one scratch that was too deep even for that, I used some turtle wax product that is the same color as the paint and supplies a crayon to fill the scratch so it is barely noticible. It worked very well If you go the touch up paint route, use the GS 27 after the paint is dry. It will feather it in for you very nicely without damaging any of the good paint.

And if that fails, a body shop should be able to handle this relatively cheaply for you....good suggestions here.
