Just about any high-quality polish will take care of those...

^Compound is very agressive and not a good idea. It will haze up black paint and you will need to follow up with a polish. Better to just use polish in the first place.

If you are looking for OTC, I would try spot treatment with Meguiar's ScratchX 2.0. Apply with a clean high-quality MF towel. ScratchX is pretty agressive so you should be good with the cutting power of the polish/MF towel combo.

Just remember to work it good and wax it up after. The bottle is on the small side and is most likely not cost effective to do the whole truck. If you are looking OTC, try swirlX. The Ultimate Compound is fairly aggressive and might be too much for what you have. No need to work the clear coat any more than needed.

Check that out. I would imagine that the swirlX might even take out those marks, but the scratchX is a nice tool to have around.

Another brand to check out is Adam's Polishes http://www.adamspolishes.com/
They have some great products for paint correction/maintaining.


Hope that helps.
