How To Repair Plastic Interior Panels?
- Joe Thomas
The Method – Step 1: Clean the area surrounding the scratch with an internal plastic cleaner. Getting a smooth finish and preventing dirt from melting into the plastic, which could alter the color, can be achieved by removing all dirt and debris. Ensure that the area is clean and dry before proceeding to the next step.
- Step 2: Apply heat to the plastic using a heat gun (about half power) until it begins to soften.
- The material might stretch and catch fire if heated for too long, causing irreversible damage.
- When the plastic is ready for molding, it will lose its texture and take on a slightly glossy appearance.
- Applying a grain pad to the affected area with very light pressure is the third step.
This will remove the scratch and give the plastic a textured finish so that it blends in. Grain pads can be purchased online and typically come in a variety of finishes. Select the one that most closely resembles the plastic trim on your automobile, and apply it using the hard-plastic application pad included with the kit.
