    T cut wont touch it if its down to the primer only way is to touch scratch up with touchup pen,i would use a needle of some sort and thinly fill the scratch bit by bit then wait a couple of hours then put another layer on top then wait till dried and finally put a couple of layers of lacquer on it.
    Then get a machine polisher and some cutting compound with a small pad and try and correct it that way.

    Everyone said mine was down to the primer but i managed to correct mine with a polisher and some 3000 grit wet/dry not for the faint hearted as it looks a mess after sanding and you have to be careful not to go to far as it will mean a respray
