    Damage To Side Panels

    I have a CLC in Obsidian Black. It looks like a shopping trolley has gone down the side of my car. It isn't scratched as such but it looks more like it has 'bruised' the lacquer. How would I deal with this. Do I use some black T-Cut, try polishing it out with wax? Thanks.
