well it all depends on what kind of scratches, because most scratches are on the clear coat, those are not to be fixed by paint. and wax, Mothers Carnuba wax in a can is good, I use Mopar Paint sealant, then I put that wax over that.

If you've got real scratches, not just in the clearcoat, get the touch-up paint from the dealership. Works great to fill in minor scratches. Then polish and wax normally, allowing at least a day for the touch-up paint to dry.

Beilive it or not. Claybar takes some light scratches from the pain. and it does wonders. So go and try that out.
