    Paint peeling and scratched dash

    Hi, my dashboard is scratched and around the gear lever the blue rubbery type paint has peeled off

    What would be the easiset and prefrebably the cheapest way to fix this?

    Not too worried about the scratches as they are on the glovebox (which is broken) and i will replace.

    But the paint around the gear stick is horrible!

    Cheers

    I would rather buy a set of eibach springs for a few quid more and know you have some quality .

    Hello mate.
    If the scratches are minor on the dash and glove box try using a heat gn like what you would use to strip paint at home.
    Build up the heat gently and you will see scratches change in front of you. Normally when plastic gets scratched it goes what we call 'abit furry'. The heat gets to these bits first and ruduces them. You'll see what I mean when you try it. Just heat it up like you missus drys her hair, not too close and keep it moving. Do not direct heat in one place if scratches do not dissapear as this method is for minor scratching only and will not do much for deeper ones. You'll be suprised how affective this is. I'm in the trade so I have used this method many times over the years. It applies to all plastic really, boot areas, door trims etc.
    As for rubber coatings it's replacement only I'm affraid. You could remove trim and take off entire coating and repaint with a plastic aerosol coating of same interior colour but yu could ruin it if you don't know what your doing. Try Audi to see how much a new part would be as I'm often supprised how cheap they can be.
    Hope this is of help to you, Craig
    If it's got t*ts or wheels, it's TROUBLE!
