Clean Up Plastic Casing (Trim) Around Wheel Sign In

My car got slightly scratched pulling in to the garage. The auto body shop said they can fix the scratches on the door, but the black plastic they cannot fix (without replacing).

Is there any suggestions on something that I can do to smooth out the plastic or maybe a product to make it less noticeable? Maybe like a product to make it seem more black (like a gloss)?

Before any attempts why not find out what a new clone or OE one is first? I'm NOT a full auto body tech just work in and around it enough over years.


That dark grey with texture is for a purpose if you did one in gloss IMO would look pretty silly?

I looked up the part, and it's actually not that expensive. Thanks for the reply!

Been at it myself with assorted stuff dirt cheap some if a popular model have choices do all? Some of that stuff will need new clips as some don't like reuse well I just bought a warehouse full sick of trying to make some attachment junk work again.


Good luck so far so good for myself for ones not "restoration" grade vehicles just want them nicer it's whacked people expect my stuff to look + behave new at decades old!
