well i used Meguiars Scratch-X for the first time yesterday, and i was very impressed. It wont remove deep scratches, but surface scratches it can handle.
As for touch up paint. I got a can of spray paint color coded from Advanced Auto, and it matches perfectly. I think you can little bottles with a little brush, from Advance too. I never used it so i can't vouge for quality.

As for finding your color code look on your RPO code list (on your spare tire cover) and check this techinfo article to find the paint code http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...e=article&k=98

If you call your GM dealer'* part dept. and give them your VIN and they can tell you your paint code. If it turns out it is "Dark Yellow Green Metallic" let me know, I've got some touch up paint in small rattle-cans you can have.

Does it look like this:


Regardless the only way to tell is the official color. Hell, just pick a random GM dealer in another state if yours are jerks and say you want to fidn out your paint code.
