    Default Scratched Heater Controls

    Hey guys, due to me being an absolute moron I've managed to make a couple of scratches on the trim around my heater controls.

    I think they have come from resting the new head unit on there, and not being careful

    Is there anyway to get rid of small surface scratches on trim like this? Or would it be better to just change it?

    the colour is in the plastic, so the scratches are now there for life......

    my best advice is to change it

    How hard are they to change? Is it easy to damage the controls/knobs?

    I damaged the fascia on one of my old vec-c's, but it were just a scratch to left it. Doubt they would be hard to change, but TBH I havent actually changed one.

    Someone will surely have done a HOW2 on here? Once the stereo;s out, it prob only be a few screws?

    Sounds like an easy fix, although I can only find one on ebay at the moment??
