Hello,

I hope everybody is well. My Kia got keyed last week. Do you think I could use kias touch up pen to fix the scratch for now. I don't mind if doesn't look super great I just don't want that it starts to corrode. Any advice would be appreciated. :)

If you run your fingernail over the scratch does it stop your fingernail?

If not then you'd be better trying to polish it out with something like G3 Pro Scratch Remover or AutoGlym Super Resin.

That scratch is too long to hide with the touch-up pen, it'll probably look worse after you finish.

Unlikely it'll corrode anytime soon.

Welcome to the Forum,

Try a Smart Paint Repair place. May not be too expensive.
A Touch up Pen will make it worse.

Thank you for the welcome. :) Yeah I am afraid it stops my fingernail when I am running over so the pen will be useless.
I will check for a smart paint repair place when I have a little bit more money, if it doesn't corrode I am happy as much as i can be with that. Thanks for the advice.

A decent body shop or detailer might be able to wet sand it and then some cutting compound to polish it, to remove it or make it less noticeable
