I scratched the side of my vehicle with another piece of metal. Around the scratch there was white powder like substance that I brushed off... it must have been some of the clear coat. It's about 2" long and 1/8" wide scratch. I don't think that it went down to the metal.

I used Meguiars Scratch-X 2.0 and it cleaned it up a little but I still see some white in the scratch (the paint is a midnight blue). How can I repair this? I have OEM touch-up paint, should I use that?

Here are the photos:

From the looks of the photos the white you're seeing is primer.
If this is your first time 'fixing' a paint scratch, I'd suggest you go to paintscratch.com and look at the videos they have on fixing scratches first.
You can do this, it will take some time and effort, it may not totally disappear. My daughter had her midnight blue Accord keyed once down the rear passenger and driver's door. She bought their paint pens and did an admirable job of fixing it, with a little coaching on my part. Metallic paint is tough to match in this case, but it won't be as noticeable once the 'white' is gone.

I have the paint now from Honda, I don't see anywhere on that site on how to do it.

On their home page go down to the bottom, I believe you'll find them under Customer Service.

I do not believe it is through to the primer, I would get a clear coat safe compound and start there, followed by a polish and wax before I would add paint.
