    Hey guys!

    I work at a dealership and we have a guy come around every week or so and he fixes scratches in the interiors of our used cars. I asked if he could match the grey plastic thats in my truck and just give me a bottle and a sprayer. he has allready fixed something for me before and did a flawless job! so in the next few days I will but some before and after photos up including the whole process. If anyone is interested after that point in the paint i could probly get him to make up some more:D

    I have a lot of scratches that I want to get rid of. I've seen someone around the forum that used a blow dryer or heat gun to get rid of the scratches, but I don't want to melt my interior.

    So I didnt wanna keep you guys waiting so I did a couple of the small scratches on the rear console just so you can see the results.

    So here is scartch 1

    Scratch 2
    [​IMG]

    and these are the final product. I did a tiny bit of sanding with 1500 grit i could have done a bit more on the one.. but this was about 15min total of work and most of that was taking th console out
