Scratched hard top

Hi I accidently caused a few nasty scratches on my new Jeep Sahara Unlimited 2010 hard top over the drivers side, did not put it away properly and teh passenger side scratched the drivers side. Live near Edmonds, WA, who can repair this or can it be repaired so it looks like new again? I am bummed out!

Jane

If it goes down to the white, I found that a Permapaque paint pen works very well to disguise the scratches. Sharpies turn blue/purple in the sun, the black paint pen remains black, and has dual tips for tiny stuff vs. larger scratches.

Hi Janie...
could you post a couple of pictures of the damage?

Luckily, scratched tops are fairly easy to fix, don't stress. Take a deep breath, let it out slowly. It's going to be ok.
