scratches on the hard top!

So.. as dumb of a question as this might be, I scratched my hard top today and now it looks horrible with white scratches in a black top, what's the best way or paint to use to cover them up.

I just filled them in with a black sharpie. It wasn't perfect but it looked better than white.

You should just scratch the other side to make it match! Ha ha there is a thread somewhere on restoring or repainting hardtops. i'll look to see if i can't find it

I used a high quality black paint marker to cover mine, worked well.

Like a touch up from the auto parts store? did you do a matte or a gloss black?
