Scratch from a bike

Hello All,

Yesterday my bike fell and the handlebars landed on the hood of my car causing a scratch. The scratch is not as deep as say a key scratch but if I run my fingernail over parts of the scratch, it catches.

Anyone have recommendations on what I can do to fix this. Watched so many You Tube videos where they are using 2000 grit sandpaper and wet sanding. Not sure if I can do a good enough job at that level.

Or does anyone recommend a place where I can go and get this repaired.

Thanks

A paint filler pen, plus clear coat and a good buff and wax job should hide it well.
