    Re: Restore the interior trim after removed the scratches

    Can't you find a replacement piece that is in better condition than what you have.

    Re: Restore the interior trim after removed the scratches

    Am I crazy to think about what some Kiwi shoe polish might do in this situation if it was the only thing you could buy locally? I dunno what kind of vehicle this is, but unless itís a Bentley or something Iíd at least try a small test spot just to see how it does.

    Why the big surprise? I mean could it really be so dramatically different than lets say Turtle Wax Endura Trim Coating? Iíve used both products and they sure look similar... Theres a little known method where some people [not me] actually coat black leather interior seats with Kiwi Shoe Polish and report great results. Go figure...

    Years ago I cleaned the nearly FUBAR light olive green leather interior in my 97í Cadillac Seville using Soft Scrub bathroom cleaner and got outstanding results.

    To this day that mightíve been the biggest turn around Iíve ever done on leather interior. And it didnít harm the seats at all.

    There is nothing to be surprised at all. Did you see the pictures I have attached and what do you think?

    I could apply solution finish to coating on the trim but I need to see if it is looks good after I have removed most of the scratches and marks.

    Re: Restore the interior trim after removed the scratches

    I should also mention that Iím not sure where youíre located, but without reading through the entire thread again, I get the impression that you may be located outside the USA?

    So that idea is simply a last resort type of thing that may just be worth a try. Test spot, not the whole thing...

    Forgive me if Iím wrong about that. Iím viewing this on Tapatalk through my phone and it doesnít show locations next to usernames like the full version does.

    If it were me I wouldnít focus too much on trying to remove the scratches. I honestly think youíd be doing more instilling scratches the more you sand or aggressively mess with it? Like I think Mike mentioned, Iíve never heard of successfully being able to remove/correct scratches on plastic trim.

    If it were me Iíd focus more on restoring it back to black.

    Or find a replacement piece in better condition..............
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
