Hide/remove scuff on black plastic trim?

Hello,
My daughter decided to scrape her mustang power wheel off my lower plastic trim... It was plastic on plastic contact.. There's a white scuff there now. Any ideas on removing this?

Re: Hide/remove scuff on black plastic trim?

Is it a white scuff from her white plastic powerwheel, or an actual deep scratch in your black plastic? If a scuff, you can try a mild APC, Magic Eraser (might want to spot check first) or PlastX to remove. If it's a scratch, that will be tougher -- and nearly impossible to fix perfectly.

It a white scuff. Not a scratch. From I think the black plastic mirror on the power wheel

Re: Hide/remove scuff on black plastic trim?

Back to Black is a dressing. It may mask the scuff, but may not remove it. I would try PlastX, and then follow up with a dressing.

Re: Hide/remove scuff on black plastic trim?

Plast-X is not for textured plastic.... I may leave reside behind

Your best bet is the Magic eraser and you can follow up with you plastic dressing of choice.

Try a rubber eraser. Worked great on my old bmw with textured plastic side moldings.

Re: Hide/remove scuff on black plastic trim?

Thanks Vivid for the tip on Mothers Back to Black. Had a few scuffs on the passenger's side and this stuff is awesome. I finished out the rest of the trim on my Laredo X and it looks better than ever.
