Dash Repair

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forum and did a search both on this site and the typical googling. This is a great site and super helpful. Anyone have any good ways to fix a scratch in a dash? The scratches are not too deep, but have a great radiant glow when the light hits it. I have a black 2011 Wrangler sport.

Thanks for any info.

-Greg

You should see my 07, before they made a change in the 11. Plastic is easily scratched on the pre 11's I've heard.
Don't think there is really a fix, unless you sand and then paint.

Hi Guys,

Yeah I have heard about people complaing about all the plastic parts in the 07 - 11 Jks. The scratch is actually in the dash where the passenger side glove airbag is, right above the glove box.

Thanks again,

Greg

The 11's were supposed to be improved
