you can use a clay bar to take off wax (available at your local pep boys or autozone)

you can also buy this gritty stuff in a tube (technical name grin) that you gently rub into the paint to take out scratches. Any auto parts store will carry a similar product. Just be careful not to damage the paint further by rubbing too hard or applying too much product.
