Default scratch repair question

Does anyone know of a scratch repair stuff <*shrug* that will work on scratches down to the metal? How 'bout the primer?

If the scratch is not too wide you can try these two products. I have had decent success with them

They make lots of touch up paints. Applicators vary from ball point pen type things, fingernail polished sized brushes, spray cans, and all the way up to "Hope you got your own sprayer". I have no idea which company to recommend, but DupliColor is well known, and has a web site

For rock chips down to primer, i love the chipstick that comes with turtle wax color cure wax. It'* not permanent, but a year after using it my chips are all still looking good. (meaning they're hard to find) If its down to metal, i don't suggest it because it won't stop rust.
