    interior scratch removal!

    I need help... was vacuuming the car and dummy me went to vacuum some dust off the dash and let a hairline scratch on the plastic above the glove box.

    What's the best way to remove that? I'll add a picture when I get home. Its not bad very thin and about 2 inches but its got 370 miles on it so its huge to me lol.

    you would be better to just leave it alone. Maybe some plastic polish might help take it out, but it will likely made that area of your dash very shiny next to the rest of it. I know that it's hard to leave it alone, but sometimes things only get worse the more you mess with them.

    why vaccuum dust off a dash? try a duster next time. it's probably going to be something you'll just have to learn to deal with. or you can always buy a new dash

    Those Cali dash dusters rock. I've had one since I was 18 and it's the best interior cleaning tool I've ever had.

    I don't know of anything you can do to resurface the vinyl on the dash. Put a bandaid over it?

    You might want to consider using a belt sander on it. Start by the scratch - in a circular motion, then expand outward until you have sanded the entire surface area of the dashboard. Once complete, carefully apply sequins to the entire surface - color and patters are up to you of course, but you might want to consider the Subaru stars or a My Little Pony theme. Next, apply several coats of high luster clear gloss. By the time you are done, no one will notice the scratch anymore.

    It just a thought.
