u can sand out scratches using sum 2000 wet sand paper on a rubbing block ( u cant do this if the scratchers are too deep), and then buff it to bring back the shine.

Don't go crazy with wet & dry on a metallic paint. Once you rub through the clear coat the paint will be destroyed.

To bring the shine back have it cut & polished by a detailer or panel shop.

Get damian from final inspection to come out and do a machine paint level, polish and enhance with menzerna intensive polish PO85RD or PO91L and then Final Polish PO106FF or PO85RD 3.01 with edge yellow or green and then blue pads and you will have a finish that is better than new and extremely wet looking with zero scratches

It may need powergloss or optimum hyper with edge black foam or edge lambswool pad but in most cases those above will fix the problem and leave the finish markless, very wet, deep and glossy ready for sealing

finalinspection.com.au
One of australia's true detailing professionals
Click on "OUR Brands and you will see menzerna and Optimum (OPT) in there, click on them for info

He can look after your paint enhancement needs
Just let him know that matt from dream machines refered you and he will really look after your needs
