    I scuffed my dash a little while installing my sub yesterday, anyone have any tips for touching it up? It's a grey dash.

    There is a way the melt the plastic to fill the scratch. You'll have to do a search or maybe someone else can elaborate on this.

    Thanks for the tip! I did a little searching on here and found what you were talking about. I don't think mine is bad enough to heat, I may just try a crayon and see what happens.

    SEM paints applied with a little vinyl sanding dust mixed with crazy glue, and a texture pad will leave a surface that requires a pro to notice it isn't OEM - of course it takes a pro to apply it since technique is everything.

    I know this 'cause I screwed up the dash of my wife's 4-Runner, asked the dealer, who referred me to a guy they call, etc., etc., etc.

    I ended up just using a pencil. The scratch was very minor in the dark grey area above the head unit. You can barely tell its there now.

    Sure. Its called AIRCRAFT INTERIOR BLACK Made by MODEL MASTER

    I took a CHUNK out of my Dash, to the light gray color looking plastic... Not sure if its recommended for White Scratch marks.

    +1 to you sir. I have a very small area where the cord for my GPS rubbed against the dash and revealed the light grey primer. :mad:
