With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I thought about trying that too

It's actually not a huge deal , I took out the inserts behind the rear seats of my DC and removed the cast in shelf from the passenger side , I was just looking to make it seem like the shelf was never there if possible

The black plastic goes white when cut / sanded

On composite and PVC decking we use heat guns to remove light scratches and swirls etc. The only concern would be is if there is any texture at all, typically the heated plastic goes matte or even sometimes semi-gloss which will make is stick out. (Semi-gloss means to much heat was used.)

Maybe try light heat gun with one of the recommended plastic touch ups?
