Do you have pictures of the damage? This will give a better idea of what can / should be done to try to repair the finish.
The repair process, to the extent that it is possible, will depend on the depth of the scratches, where they are, etc.
Scratches/pits need to be removed with the appropriate sequence of sanding and then the surface polished or perhaps glass bead blasted and then gone over with a fine wire wheel.
