    Interior scratches

    Is there any way to fix little scratches on the plastic door/dash pieces? I've got a few that, while not entirely noticeable, are bothering me.

    Thanks

    I'd be curious to find out what other people do about this too...

    To tell you the truth, I don't know, they only thing that might hide it (depending on the severity of the scratch might be to ArmorAll the interior. However is going to be a gooey mess inside...

    I also have a few scratches on my inside door panels from taking stuff out of the car. This may be completely stupid, but I was thinking of spraying some flat black paint on a wet rag and lightly rubbing it over the scratches to try and blend the color. Yes - No?

    Spray paint + 25 thousand dollar car = bad.

    This might sound crazy but I have used a crayon to hide and fill a few minor scratches.

    Crayola's rule!

    I have noticed on my Rex interior there is some kind of wierd plastic/whitish coating on the doorpanels/etc that even a light scratch shows ups as a "light spot" in the part.

    It isnt like the panel underneath that is scratched, Just the "alien" substance is scratched........

    Anyone else?

    (I guess this reminds me of the post about that "fog" in the rear window thread)

    Strange thing this Sooby...

    Yeah, mine are the same way. I don't have any deep scratches, just very light ones that turn the panel white. Same thing on the side skirts. It's almost like when you slip with the buffer, and hit a black piece of molding.

    I have a huge ass scratch that is about 8 inches long on the front of my glove compartment. It has been there as long as I can remember, still don't know exactly how it happened though... it wasn't like that when I bought it.

    bob ross would use his magic with a vinyl repair kit and fix that right up- only thing about it is that you have to mix the colors yourself- so results depend on how good your eye is. the kits come with different colors and a few texture pattern things to match up with the wrx interior. oh they also come with this little heat tool that you have to warm up on an iron and that's what cures that stuff- supposed to make a nice permanent repair that unnoticeable.
