Car Was Keyed...Vinyl Trunk, Roof, Hood

My trunk and hood were keyed recently and i had the idea of just wrapping the whole trunk and maybe the hood in matte black vinyl till i can get it painted.
my roof is already wrapped gloss black but would wrap that matte as well, what do you guys think? maybe just the roof and trunk? the hood marks arent as bad.

I really hope you're not being serious

OP, I assume the scratches are too deep to buff out. Instead of wasting money on a temporary solution, just roll around with scratches until you've saved enough money to get it properly repaired. Makes logical sense

ill post pics of the scratches tomorrow...they are to deep to buff out, to the metal
the one on the hood looks more like someone hit it with a rock. not that big but left a dent...
i posted a pic of the car just to see if you guys thought the vinyl idea would look good.
and the dent in the door was there when i got the car, the guy before me who owned it lived in sf.

I'm with the guys who say don't do anything and save up to have it fixed right. It's a silver car - clearcoat scratches silver/white and I can't even see it in the picture. If you are super concerned, you can try Meguiars buffing compound and a tub of wax. I have several very irritating moderately deep (not down to bare metal) scratches and the Meguiars stuff really conceals the imperfections on a dark car.

I personally wouldn't do the carbon fiber wrap or anything because I don't think it would look good, but it's your ride so do what would make you happiest.

That sucks. I hit another car with my door and it dinged the car. I left a note with my phone number in case they wanted me to pay for a repair. I can't imagine the people who can jut go around keying people's cars without a care in the world.
