    Just wanted some help and ideas on some scratches on my 2014 Prius that I just bought.
    Scratch 1: it does go down past the paint so I’m thinking just a buff won’t help.

    scratch 2: this one is the worst on the car. The chips on the edge are about the thickness of Braille texture if that makes sense. Maybe a buff and some black paint?

    Any product or technique recommendations would be greatly appreciated. So far I’m loving the new Prius.

    First one looks like it'd be ideal for a dab of touch up paint... Second one I'd remove and either take to a body shop that offers a fair price, or I'd sand down the worst of it and spray a thick layer of plasti-dip, also known as peelable spray paint.
