    Default bonnet/wing in bad condition

    Really want to get my car cleaned and protected for the winter, so i thought id get these bits that have been annoying me sorted.

    First off the bonnet, when i got the car there was a big key scratch across the bottom right of the bonnet, i had a go at removing it myself, think i did an OK job (cant see the scratch anymore!) but theres an area that is not as...laqured, as the rest of it. will this be hidden by a good clean/polish/wax job or will it need respraying?

    In the top middle of the bonnet there was 6 small scratches, i used a touch up pen on them, but now there "above" the level of the paint, suggestions? dont want to wet sand them down because there so thin, dont want to damage the surrounding paint.

    On the n/s wing, theres a similar patch as the bonnet, with a small bit seeming to be less laqured than the rest.

    Cant get my phone to sync so no pics at the mo, will get them on later if it helps, basically want to know if it can be fixed/polished out or a respray? Car is Sapphire Black btw,

    cheers

    Default

    Following a minor push parking incident a few months, I touched up my front bumper
    I then waxed my car and noticed HUNDREDS of stonechip marks across the front of the bonnet at the grille

    Since the paint had been so badly damaged I went the respray route and got two quotes
    Dealership wanted £700, NCRC wanted £350
    The bonnet and front bumper was a complete respray, the wings were exposed edges only
