Bad scratches

Looks like one of the PO crashed into a whole forest! Overall the out side is just oxidized but some spots have really bad scratches. I've got a pretty good shine on this panel except I was wondering if there's a way to reduce (or remove) these scratches and rub marks. I know it's hard to see because of the reflection but it starts where my knuckles are and goes off to the right. Click image for larger version

I had someone give the entire side of my recently finished Safari i kiss scrape about 12 feet long. It happened at Bellville Rally....and no one fessed up. I will try some heavy duty polishing and hope for the best....then the sanding as a last effort.
