    Sorry Jim, I have tried and tried to cover panal/dash scratches.

    It seems thier is a thin translucent coating on the dam plastic.

    Anyone else found a cure?

    Light sandpaper? Try getting the finest sandpaper you can get and just scratching at them until you can level them all out.

    I cant really think of anything else.

    don't use nothing less than 2000 grit used for polishing automotive paint but i never tried it
    This is just a caution don't try to use 60 grit or you'll sand a whole instead
