    Go back in your time machine to before you scratched the interior and don't scratch. :mamoru:

    Really isn't much you can do. There are vinyl repair kits but results are mixed at best.

    I bought it used, just trying to clean it up. :o :hs:

    Is it possible to just sand them down?
    I'm only really hoping to smooth the scratches out, I know there will always be missing plastic, just want it to be less obvious.
    What do the repair kits actually do? is it a filler/dye type of thing?

    I realized I probably should have mentioned, this is in the cargo area on the plastic on the sides. It's a SUV that spent 5 months as a rental, no one cared to pad stuff they moved with it.

    The scratches need to be sanded, filled, and dyed.

    Don't try it yourself. You'll spend $60 on fillers, dyes, and sprayers and screw it up. Call local car dealerships and ask for a plastic repair specialist. Should be $150.
