    Someone has managed to put a small scratch (about 3/4 inch) on my glovebox! Not happy about this, and it really stands out. The glove box is a textured plastic and I'm finding it difficult to think of a way to hide the scratch as much as possible!

    Any ideas?

    When I got my last car (Golf V), the dash had some minor damage which they couldn't fix straight away. However they had a woman who came in to fix such things who fixed it a few weeks later.

    All I know is that I dropped the car in one day, waited an hour or so, and it had all gone. Car smelt of glue/resin afterwards but the fix was totally invisible.

    It was a mobile service but alas I can't remember the name. She said most of her trade was visiting car dealers fixing stuff up before cars were sold.

    Thanks. I've read about using a heat gun / hairdryer to make the plastic pliable so you can rub the scratch out with your finger (apparently..!|)

    Pic of damage.

    Yes the covering does allow you to rub the surface with some pressure & the makeup of the covering actually, for some scratches, covers up some.
