Scratched black molding

Hi, I scratched the black molding on the bottom of the car on the rear bumper. It's nothing major or really noticeable but it bothers me. Anyone have any ideas how to get the scratches out?

Thanks!

Depending on the "scratch" some superficial ones come out well with a bit of polish on a soft cloth.

It's pretty superficial, however is on the black protective molding on the bottom of the car, so it's different than paint.

Re: Scratched black molding

A heat gun set to LOW will remelt the plastic in the scratches slightly so it will be black again, and no longer noticeable.

Search Google for specifics, but there's not much to it. No tooling or prep, just point the gun at it and in a few second the lighter marking that shows where the scratch is will disappear.
