Interior Scratches/Stains

Hi guys,

Do you know if there is a way to get rid of such stains/scratches? I think itís caused by the metal catch of the safety belt for the first picture. As for the second picture, I think itís some erosion due to sweaty hands near the handle?

The products in the market help 'cover up' and reduce the visibility of these scratches. Thats all.
As mentioned, tons of brands over at the stores such as Autobacs, if you DYI. Else, ask car detailers if they can removed it permanently.

U bought a used ride?

These have to live with it bah. My new ride within a month kena these already. The top plastic surface kena scratched out.

U less u wanna stick those plastic film to protect, which I find it's damn pai kua. Alternatively see u can order the replacements and change if it really bothers u

This might work, but don’t overheat and burn your plastics

Easy peasy.

Get some waterproof sandpaper, 8000 grit, wet it thoroughly and very lightly rub the deep scratches area to flatten it.

After that, apply Meguair trim detailer.

For the marks at the vinyl and doors, use Meguair shine protectant.

Before u go sandpaper route. Bear in mind u will flatten that area. The texture will be different from the rest of the part.

Thatís why I say rub slowly at the affected area not all around it. Wonít be visible and donít rub too hard just rid the scratches mildly will do. Donít be over ambitious and want to remove all.

Rub along the lines of the design will help too.
