Well, I tried to move a 32" TV with my girlfriends Impreza and I almost had it in the front seat, but didn't realize the back was scratching the dash. <p>Its black...so what can I do to fill the small gouge and make it look normal again?<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Maybe one of those vinyl repair kits from a late night infomercial...or was it Ronco? I forget.

Re: Repairing scratched plastic (phuz)

Not much that you can do. The only option is to lessen is rather than get rid of it. Either try some vinylex or armorall to clean the dash and try to mask the marks from the scratches.

You think you wouldve learned to be more careful after tearing your leather in your R moving stuff. <p>2 options here<br>1.) Try magoons/vipers option<br>2.) Dont tell your g/f <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

I had a Honda Accord that was broken inot , the dash was cut by the glass about a two inch cut, I had it repaired and it looked great, I'll try to find out who did the work, but it was about 10 years ago.

BTW,<p>if anyone needs work interior work in the tri-state area, contact: Brian at "Fabrion Pendel" @ (610) 623-8060. I drove 1 1/2 hours to get to him to have this work done. He takes strong pride in his quality work and is well worth it.

Jim is the franchise you were telling me about my seats? If so I've bookmarked them. Do they refurb the hard plastic trim in vehicles? I've got a Honda Odyssey which needs some serious work.

the webpage is online. I was referring to the name you had for me in St. Louis. I pulled up MO and there are several names in the St. Louis region
