Repair scratches

Hi all, just started to enjoy my new Armada. Washed it this weekend and bang the garden hose on it by mistake and end up scratching it. I am pretty sure it can be fixed easilly with the right product. My vehicule is black and now the little scratches are white. What product would you used?
Thanks
Eric

I've had great luck with DrColorChip. This product works really well on paint chips, not as well on long scratches. Go to www.drcolorchip.com for more info.

Is the paint all the way down to the primmer or is it the clear coat? My buddy owns a detail shop and i seen him do two things. If it is just clear coat, he uses clear nail polish. If the scratch is down to the primmer, he matches the paint and then buffs it out. I seen him do this on a car that was keyed and you could not tell when he was done.

Repairing scratches

I use a small hyperdermic syringe with a small needle, fill it full of the correct paint and then carefully fill in the scratch. Using a needle with a small opening allows better control of the amount of paint that comes out. Carefully fill the scratch until its level with the surrounding paint, once dry use some rubbing compound just to smooth it out. Work every time.
