I wouldn't buff it as it will polish up and look shiny.

I have a small scratch on the tank from the zipper on my jacket, I was thinking of buying the HD Denin Black paint can and try a light mist from it. I am going to try vinegar (light acid) first in case the zipper material rubbed&nbsp\\;off onto the paint and there is a remote chance this may remove the metal without harming the paint.

Only suggestion I have would be to try a small pin strip design, or comemorate the day you bought it with a cover up slogan. But, don't buff it no matter what or you will have an even bigger problem to cover up.
Best of Luck to ya.
