use a satin finish paint. hides the scratches and imperfections very well. buy a quart or two, then just a couple of spray cans of the same color for touch ups after trail riding. mine has held up very well for over 5 years now. it's on my ranger pu. i will be using satin paint again this summer for my cj5. lots of colors available in satin.
