How to fix scratched carbon fiber?

I opened a box with a dull knife today but not carefully and cut thru the bubble wrap around a set of carbon mirror covers. I ow have a nice white scratch into the clear coat but not into the carbon fiber. The scratch is fairly deep, it'll catch a fingernail. What's the best way to fix this without a clear coat spray? Clear touch up and polish?

if you're handy you could probably do it yourself with a little polish and a little wet sanding. or a body should could probably fix it for a few bucks.

Or you could invest in a used brain on ebay and save yourself thousands of dollars over the years..... just think of it as a long term investment, it will be worth every penny. It may even save your life one day!

...or sell the marked set on ebay disclose its scratched, take a little hit and order your self a new set, if it bothers you enough, otherwise is a character mark in my book.
