Default Scratch repair on Black Onyx Redline

I have a 2008 Redline whose car cover lost a battle with itself and the wind. Around and below the fuel filler door there are multiple scratches that like someone used a very fine medal fan brush on it. The finger nail test indicated these were clear coat deep. There's one scratch that looks like the car got keyed. In a way it did because the straps broke and the cable lock did a number on the panel. I've tried Turtle Wax Scratch Repair on the advice of the local Auto Zone. The fan scratches are "lighter" but still noticeable. The longer scratch is still there in all its glory.
So, any suggestions on what to do to clear up these scratches on a Black Onyx Redline? FYI - I had a ding on the hood of my MKZ and Ford's color pen did the trick. Here's what surprised me. I dribbled some of the touch up and used a paper towel to quickly wipe it up. Just for the heck of it, I then rubbed the paper towel onto a couple light scratches on the bumper. Can't tell they were ever there now. Lucky or viable alternative?

I see that the thread is dead, but did you manage to repair the car?

Hahaha, I can't believe that you answered to a one-year-old thread, now I want to know if he managed to repair it too. Anyways the author's story reminded me of a friend from Manchester with the same car, his ex-girlfriend got really mad on him, and she scratched his whole car with a key, a lot of nasty words all over his beautiful car, pretty heartbreaking. Besides all that she broke the car's side mirrors. In the end he gave his car to scrapi.com, a company that picks up cars for scrapping, absolutely free and very fast, and also he brought that case to the court, now she owes him money.

Sorry I haven't replied sooner. At my age I'm lucky to remember what you asked. Plus having the guide arm on a four row planter fall on me didn't help. Any way, I took it to a local body shop. He siad it didn't need paining, just a good buff out. And if he didn't succeed, no charge. He said he didn't succeed but he did get 90% of the scratches out. A little more judicious application of Turtle Wax and you can barely see them at all. I do have a couple others that look like a fine silver wire is on the body. My hand isn't steady enough to get them.

OP has managed to find a way to solve this problem and it is through the help of a car mechanic.
