    Scratched Dash Panel

    During the install of my Kartboy short shifter I accidentally pulled to hard and the shifter jammed into the temperature knob and dash. The knob has a heavy scratch and the grey dash has some scratches not as deep though.

    This is on a 2013 WRX

    Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

    Pics would help determine the method or if it was possible!

    Scratched Dash Panel

    As you can see I scratched the temperature knob and also the grey dash panel a little bit.

    I looked online and you can't just order a new knob you have to get the entire heater control unit which is around $400-500.

    I know it a new car and all ( I have 13 as well), but I wouldn't lose any sleep over that.

    You may be able to use some model paint and touch up. But as said above I wouldn't lose any sleep over it
