If your going for a show truck I would repaint it. A show quality paint job will cost 5 grand+ though, easy.

depends on what quality you want. Id try the paint cleaning method first, wet sand 2 - 3000 grit, then go over it with m105 then m205 then finish it up with #7 and #26 or #21 or NXT or whatever wax you wanna use...

if that doesnt achieve the clarity you want then go for the repaint... A small detail jonb would cost a hellava lot less than a repaint

It depends how deep the scratches are. A good wax will hide some scratches but it won't remove them. You need to find someone with a rotary buffer and knows how to use it to totally remove them.
