Nothing gets out deep scratches like rubbing compound, and it works so well because it removes a layer of paint. Needless to say, you need to be careful when using it to keep from removing too much paint and potentially burning through the clearcoat. On a small spot like this, pour a small amount on a terry-cloth towel and rub the area of the scratch with moderate to firm pressure. Working by hand like this is much less risky than using a high-speed buffer.
