Surface Scuffs

Hi All,

Just after a bit of advice after reading conflicting stories about how to remove surface scuffs. In the past on my non-metallic paint cars I've used T-Cut to remove light surface scuffs, however I've read it can't be used on metallic paint - is this true? If so what could I use?

There are a number of very light scratches on the paintwork all over the place and I would like to clear them up. I imagine using a touch up pen would be overkill and messy as these are not deep at all, just very light abrasion. I'll attach a few photos and hopefully you'll see what I'm talking about!
I'm planning to do this tomorrow with polishes etc having to be bought locally rather than bought online as a lot of people advise.

Also - after the scratches have been repaired could I use Turtle Wax car polish (I'm thinking Turtle Wax Nano Tech Wax) the same day or is it best to leave any repair to key for a few days?

Any advice would be appreciated.
