How can I hide a scratch in plastic?


Recommended Posts

Somehow I have managed to place a scratch in the grey, metallic like, plastic seat backing of one of my 997 adaptive sport seats. The scratch is not very deep but appears as a thin, near vertically running, straight, white line about three inches long just below the coat hanger.

Does anyone have any helpful suggestions as to how I might camouflage this?

Most Auto part shops have colored car wax/polish - used to hide scratches on exterior paintwork.

Match the closest version to your seat back - and see how it fares. A plastic polish won't work - since the scratch has removed the paint, and exposed the plastic composite color below - you have to somehow replace the lost color, and the suggested automotive colored wax is probably the easiest solution - other than using a touch up pencil or brush..........

Yes I'm sure you are right, I will check out what coloured waxes are available, other alternatives that have been suggested are shoe polish and a permanent pen marker. My local body shop warned against polishing as this results in a localised high gloss finish that looks wrong against the original matt sheen.
