You need to wetsand and buff; the clear coat is heavily abraded. Other option would be to blow a bit of clear over first, then bring up as above - it would just fill the scratches eventually.

Remove the pink paint first using a paint restorer or scratch remover (NOT T-cut!). You may find with judicious elbow grease this will remove the lighter of the scratches too, but the worse ones will still probably need wetsanding with 2500 grit paper. Once the scratches are gone, use the paint restorer/scratch remover to bring back the shine to the area.

Get some Farecla G3 scratch remover, good stuff and show her how to use it so next time you don't get to see it till after she's fixed it. Big Grin
So where does this bit go then ?

What is wrong with Tetrosyl Cutting Oil (T-Cut), Feux?
I have been using it for years.
Brought the (neglected) roof of my Berlingo up like I mirror (and still is, 2 years later).
Realise it is not what the Professional valeter or detailer uses.
Hasn't it recently won awards from 'Which? Magazine'?

My mate swears by mixing t-cut and coloured polish in equal parts.
Worked fine on a black car that I saw.
