Getting scratches out??

How realistic is getting scratches out of aluminum? Scratches were done by. Scotch pad while removing zolatone. Not too sure how the nuvite will work on the interior but I'm hoping it will be nice and help with the scratches...

Nothing too deep but annoying

The only way to remove scratches is by removing more metal... Ie, polishing. The more you try buff them, the more distinctly different that area will be. A good cleaning and non abrasive polish can minimize them...
