removing scratches from tree branches

Hi guys
Just returned from a four day camp out. Unfortunately I brushed against some tree branches and lightly scratched the surface of our Binki3
I washed my AS hoping ithey were just dust scratches but it turns out they are scratches on the clearcoat finish. It doesn't appear that the scratches are in the aluminum. What's the best product to use and the best way to appy?

I had a few of those that came out with a light touch of Rain Dance polish (it's what I had on hand). I was happy to see they came right out- or maybe were filled by the wax.

I had those scratches too. Mine disappeared when I Walbernized (waxed) it. I was surprised because I thought for sure there were going to be permanent. It's been about 2 months now and the scratches haven't reappeared yet. Hopefully they are gone for good.

Walbernize does a nice job of hiding the scratches. They will still be there but as long as you keep your A/S waxed regularly, they will be pretty much invisible.
