scratch removal?

i just had my truck clearcoated, than had a bright idea to take her offroad, i had a slight encounter with a tree, and gave my taco i nice scratch, now im trying to get rid of it. here is the biggest one:



then i got this smaller one:



and then this big hole type scratch:



i waxed but it doesn't get that big scratch out, and then they just come right back when the wax wears out, any suggestions wold be great

Well just know that if you decide to do more offroading in the future, you're most likely going to get them. Anyways, good luck with trying to get rid of them!

You could always invest in a Porter Cable 7424XP and some foam pads. Getting scratches like that out are a pain by hand. Serious elbow grease. The PC and a orange pad with some good polish will erase those scratches in no time. Plus with that dark color, the PC will keep it swirl free. Great investment if you like to keep a flawless finish

Cheapest place to get it. Then you can get pads where you like. I would say an orange pad + a white pad. I would say 2 of each would be good so you don't have to clean you pads too oftern during your detail. Whatever you do, don't use that white pad that comes with the 74224. And don't forget the washer!!
