Need some ideas to fix my paint

So I took the family up to the hills today, and ran out of trail. Being me I keep going thinking I could get back to the old trail. Which started out okay until the sage brush was taller than the the hood of my ex. (mind you that I have a 4 inch lift and 35's) it was bad but keep going now my ex. has some pretty good battle scars down both sides of it. Was looking to get some ideas on what I can use to possibly cover these up without needed a hole new paint job. The scratches didn't get the the metal and most of them are thin. Any ideas would help.

Thanks in advance.

If they are light a good wax might remove them. If you use a polish follow it up with wax to protect the paint.

You might have to wet sand and buff it out. Wax would only cover it up for a few washes. If you have not done it before, you should have a someone do it who has. You can seriously screw up a paint job if you don't know what you are doing.
