Help with interior scratches

I recently bought some used Aux Gauges for my SS1 Camaro everything works great however they do have some scratches on them. Can Anyone give me some tips to fix them without having to go out a repaint them completely? I tried some car wax didnt work at all.

More than likely you'll just have to repaint them

Yes, I agreed on this. Looks like you might have to repaint it again unless you can find someone or a product that will remove those scratches like using a polish by hand. Let us know how it turns out for you.

Also I do remember that you may be able to repaint it yourself using OEM Spray paint from Dupli-Color.

It never hurts to try. When you remove scratches you end up smoothing the surface around the scratch as well (polishing). This leads to that area having more gloss/shine than the other areas. That is why it is near impossible to remove scratches from satin or flat finishes.

Maybe your GM dealer will be able to tell you the color code you need.

I was having a hard time trying to find the paint in a spray can so I decided to try wetsanding the the scratches out . I started out with some 2000 grit sand paper wetsanding the area with plain water then I polished the area with plastic headlight polish and it worked good. The only thing you wanna watch out for if you going to try this is not to sand too much I did on one of the scratches and it didnt come out as good as the rest .
