How to fix scratches?

My F***ing Dog, decided that my front bar :eek:(the newly painted front bar:< )was a chew toy.

How should I go around fixing these?

Should I sand the area so the scratches are flat inlin with the paint, lightly prim the area and get some pressure pack made from the paint code, and then clear it?


Should I just take it the panel beaters that fixed the kangaroo hit previously?

I have mucked around with paint on cars before but I am still a novice.

Atm I just lightly sanded it and hand buffed it so the scratches wouldn't flake.

Damn. You might have to sand and prime a bit to get things to flow evenly again. I would classify those as very small dents, not necessarily scratches! I can't say for sure, but I'd sand, fill in and holes/small dents with filler, then prime and paint. Be sure not to use any vegetable, or food based paints so the dog doesn't eat it again!

I hate to say you're pretty S.O.L. Those are gouges, and if you want it to look right, need to be sanded, filled, and painted by a professional. You might be able to do a little bit with touch up paints and primer/fillers but overall, it won't look the same. Just better.
