The sg dash is painted/stained on the surface. (Aswell as textured.)

The plastic underneath is alot lighter colour, and they have achieved the dark coating with a stain of some sort i reckon.

You could probably find some plastic suitable paint at stupidcheap. And just touch it up so it isnt so obvious. Maybe test in an inconspicuous area first. And then had apply with a q tip or something just over the scratch.

One will fade and the other will melt in the Summer heat.
Why not ask an upholstery shop what they recommend?

I tried using a plain 2B pencil and it worked a treat. Scratches now barely visible. Should not fade or melt :)

I was really wondering what grade of pencil would be good for this. I was saying to myself:

2B or not 2B? That is the question.
