Scratches in paint

Well I got my first scratch on my '12 today, but I know. It's a truck!! But at the same time I get kinda bummed about it. It could be worse than a scratch and atleast I have an awesome truck to drive everyday!! And bird poop...... Absolutely hate birds cause they seem to know when I wash my truck, the day of or after I find bird poop on my truck.

First scratch always sucks!! Truck or not.. its new. If it's not too deep it can probably be polished and buffed out.
Just make sure to wash off that bird poop quickly.. stuff is like acid

Heard that! It's not that deep but you can pick it with the fingernail a little bit. And I always do, I hate bird poop and I think birds know we don't like it and that it destroys paint. Lol

Anyone try this? My '12 looks like it was attacked by angry owls fighting horny cats. I'm only holding it together because my little girls thought their first off-road experience was so awesome.

No. I bought Turtle Wax Polishing Compound, which removes light to medium scratches, oxidation, and swirl marks. Safe with clear coat and Turtle Wax has also been good from what I hear so I bought it. Didn't really do anything for me.
