Friends,
Got some scratches while backing up, how to hide this via some sticker or what?
Not interested in getting repainted

You can use a mild polish to deal with some of it, but a good chunk of it is worn through the clear and then some are through the paint. You could always use touch up paint for the parts through the paint after you polish some of it (be careful not to remove MORE) and then use a synthetic sealant or wax to close it up. Of course, you'll need to reapply once the wax/sealant wears out. Nothing quite beats a paint repair/repaint.

this!

the spots where what looks like the primer (see illustration below) that's now exposed to the elements. will first need to be cleaned out properly (isopropyl alcohol); then add a couple of layers of touch-up paint. use a tooth pick to add the layers. add little layers at a time with a drying period in between. get the layers of touch-up paint so as if it feels it's higher than the surrounding finished paint. do some very light wet sanding with less abrasive sand paper. (there's youtube videos for this entire process. check out Ammo NYC. he's good at explaining the steps)
