Before:





After:






to fix the scratches:

* i heated the plastic areas with a blowdryer (full blast).
* i kept the blowdryer as close to the plastic as i could with out touching the area.
* every 20-30 seconds check the area, see if it is hot, and rub your finger over the scratches with firm presure.
* repeat untill scratch is either gone or significantly better

for the deeper scratches:

* instead of using finger, rub your finger nail over the scratch


make sure you dont heat the plastic up too much, in one area i did a little too much, and flattened out the roughness of the plastics grain.

when you heat plastic it tends to get shiny, but when i did it, its very unnoticeable unless you get up close and personal.

if you guys have any other questions, about how i did it, or if you need to fix your own scratches, let me know ill help as best as i can. thanks!

thats exactly what mine are from... my buddies computer was in the back, and some how put scratches EVERYWHERE.. and i dont even know how it got in a few places.. and yes, i know it should be in the cheap tricks, but wasnt sure if it should be under interior.. so i just decided to do one of them.. the mods can decide if they should be put in some other place:p

coolness i wounder if a heat gun is over kill
it would. my blowdryer melted a part just a little too much, and i lost some of the roughness of the plastic, so there is a part about the size of a nickle that looks flat (but still unoticeable unless pointed out)
