Touch up or repaint?

the shortened story:

Moved my bike underneath my stairwell in between some bushes at my old apartment and scratched up my mirrors. Not bad just, an eye sore.

I don't think buffing would help. The rash seem pretty deep. eBay would be an option if there were any available (I checked). I'm thinking of taking them to a paint shop to try to color match.

NuFinish (available almost anywhere) and an orbital buffer will take a lot out. My mom has goats. Once, on a trip to her place, they decided my car was a suitable replacement for a mountain. Scratched it to and back. It took awhile, but NuFinish and a buffer got most of the scratches out, and I'm pretty sure those scratches were deeper than a bush under some stairs could inflict.

Those goats think they own the world don't they?! Was at a buddies house working on his chopper and walked out to my van to find a goat standing in the back of it (left sliding door open) looking at me like "wut?" and in it too.

Those goats are evil. Rode my bike up once. They climbed all over it, but my tank bag kept them from scratching anything. I told my mom if they ever climbed on one of my vehicles again there'd be goat on the pit for dinner.
