Re: Scuffs on plastic parts

Hi there.

I wouldn't use T-cut as all it will do is leave a white residue on the black plastic which will just accentuate the marks.

If the surface is intact, then what you can do is get an aerosol of matt or satin black (depends how it was originally finished), spray some into the lid - dip the end of a soft lint-free cloth into the paint and gently spread it over the edge which has been scuffed.

Needless to say, don't use huge amounts or keep rubbing it in whilst its drying - you will also need to do this under cover.

Once it has dried, you can then gently wipe any excess amount with the same cloth.

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
