Default Surface Marks - How do I fix?

Bicycle fell on front side of my 95 Vette, leaving some visible marks - not really scratches (not that deep), but still distressing. What products or expertise could I use to restore? Also, where could I get touch-up paint for some old road chips? While I'm at it, I might as well fix these too. The car is Purple Metallic and not a show car, but I love it, and try to keep it looking good.

There is a corvette car car section:

You should be able to 1st try a good cleaner wax and hand buff it ... if that doesn't work go with a buffer. As far as paint goes on your build sheet it has the paint code whereby you can get matching paint in either touchup or spray from most auto-parts stores. Duplicolor comes to mind.

Get this and use microfiber cloths. Apply by hand. This stuff is amazing. Always had this product in my body shop.

If you can't catch a finger nail the "scratch" is likely to polish out.

I just picked up the Dupli Color "Scratch Fix All in 1" to try and improve the appearance of a few paint dings on my "new" red '89. The kit contains: abrasive tip, paint tip & brush, clear coat brush.

From the U-tube vids I don't think it will yield a perfect look but maybe better than current condition.
