You should get a PC 7424 and some SSR 2.5 and SSR 1.0 and polish the hood. Your car has a lot of swirl marks anway besides those scratches. You may be able to reduce some of the scratches but it looks like some areas of those scratches are pretty deep.

That was going to be my suggestion. You paint is in need of care badly and this could be a way to help fix your imperfections as well as help minimize the scratches. Start with this combiniation than if needed, resort to touch up + wetsanding + polishing or take it to a professional.

Here are the links to the Poorboy's Products:
SSR2.5
SSR1
PC7424 + velcro backing plate + white polishing pad
Orange Cutting Pad

my330ci04 hit the nail on the head though as far as what I was going to recommend to you. Nice work my330ci04

Sincerely,

George @ DI
