Help Me out With This Scratch

Okay so a coworker was carrying a ladder, wasn't paying attention and bam scraped my car. Scratch doesn't look deep at all but the car has a new paint for about 3 months. It's bothering the f*ck out of me now. How can I fix it! Please please please I want it too look like its not there anymore. My car is my baby and is crying because of what happened to her!

it doesnt look to deep, can you catch it on a finger nail? I you can start by cleaning the surface to remove any wax or dirt then use rubbing compound (CLEAR COAT SAFE!!!! !) go slow one direction, then the other, across the scratch etc and it should slowly go away. Do it a few times then coat with wax as normal. If that wont take it out you may need a buffer to get in there, but none of the above will work if its down past the clear coat.

I payed $30 at that show I think it was totally worth it. I had some scratches way worse that the OP's on my truck and it looked new after this.

But yea it's expensive wax lol

Take it to a good detail shop in you area, they will get it out. Have them do the complete car and give you coworker the bill, he will be more carful next time.
