Hey you all, ive got loads of scratches on the black plastic in side the car... its just the usual wear and tear round the bottom of the door from where your foot catches the panel as you get in and out the car...

My question is how do you get these scratches out??? Any product or company that specialise in removing these scratches???

Many thanx

Diablo :devil:

if you use some back to black it makes the scratches far less noticable, but you need to apply it weekly. plastic isnt like paint, you cant sand it down or touch it up, plus it has a textured finish and it wont absord anything, so your options are very limited as far as repairs go. the best option is to replace any damaged part with better condition ones from a scrapyard, its cheap and easy.

try using a heat gun. just gently waft it over the affected area not too close mind you and watch the scratches disapear this is great for bent plastics as well but you must pay attension to what you are doing. or it could go tits up.

as with any job you undertake on a car you must pay 100% attension wether you are changing the oil or simply washing the car. i have used the heat gun on many aspects of my car and have had stuning results the trick is take your time look at what you are doing and do it right first time.
