How to fix this scuff?

When I took my hard top off for the first time, tried to do it by myself a scuffed up the side, made me sick. I should have thought about fixing it while it was off, but any way. I put the hard top back on for the Winter months and need to fix this. Any suggestions?

I would get some matt black paint and matt tan in rattle cans and spray some paint into the cap and mix the two with only enough tan to lighten to color match. Before touching up though you can buff but!...critical part: only use no more then a drop of compound to only moisten the foam pad. Dont use clothe. Clothe will cut undesired lines into the factory spackle. Foam pad and just drop of compound to moisten the pad and very fast pass over the effected area. You will only pass over once or twice and it will begin to shine so becarefull. You want between a scuff and a buff to remove most of those scratches. If you buff it too much it will shine that area like a diamond ring. If you happen to shine it you can use MEK on a rag and creativly pat and little twist to dull the shine. Almost anything you use will leave a residue on the top. They are finicky like that. Good old soap and water to remove anything left over. As far as the chips you want to use your mixed concoction of paint to carefull fill in the chips. Bottom end of a soft match or even a clean old fingernail polish brush should work fine. Just make sure what ever paint you decide its flat not shiny. Hope that helps.
