buffing out interior plastic scuffs

any idea on how to minimize scratches/scuffs on hard plastics on the interior? I was hauling around a 46" Sony LCD that had this "fancy" steel and glass bevel... which scratched up the plastic around the seatbelt assembly pretty bad.

Put Vasoline on it. It hides the scratches pretty good. You can also try using a cigarette lighter to blend the scratch in as well. Be careful when you use the lighter you can melt or mar the plastic and make it worse. Personally I like the Vasoline
