Re: Scuffs on plastic parts

You have a few options before resorting to filler.

Can you remove the plastic?

If so, by gently warming the inside of the trim, and carefully pushing it from within, then its possible the trim will resume its memory shape.

If you can't, or chunks have been knocked out of it, then filler is probably the last resort - I would use plastic padding filler as its more flexible.

Depending on the item being repaired, it may be less hassle to simply replace it.



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