How do you fix a car's interior plastic that has scratches?

I was unloading some things from my car when I accidentally nicked my car's plastic dashboard. How can I fix a scratch in my car’s plastic?

Super sorry that you scratched up your car! Luckily, though, you have several options to fix the scratch, depending on how severe it is:
  • Use heat gun and grain pad to fix the scratch
  • Use a grain pad with filler putty
  • Use a plastic scratch polish kit
Any of these methods should fix up your plastic scratches, as well as improve or maintain the retail value of the car!
If you want to make sure your car stays in tip-top shape, you should also review your car insurance policy to ensure that you’re getting the best deal on the coverage you need. To do this easily, check out the app—we’ll get you customized quotes from top insurers in seconds, so all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you!
Best of luck with the repairs!
