Anyone have any tips for hiding scratches on interior trim?

I've got scratches on the interior trim on the doors of my 02 Civic EX from people getting in and out (including myself...I'll admit). Does anyone know of a good way to cover those scratches up so they don't look so obvious?

Thanks in advance!

I would like to know as well, I have an '88 CRX and needless to say - I have collected my fair share of scratches

I got the same problem...

Possibly, if you hit 'em up with a heat-gun for a little bit? Would probably still look bad, but maybe not as noticeable...

depends on the scratch. I am an installer and yes from time to time I accidentally scratch something. A heat gun can cover up some stuff but it is not full repair. but yeah try a heat gun. dont over heat it though. best thing that i have found out is to hit it with the gun, let it sit 10 minutes hit it again. then try to smooth it with your finger. ( you will burn your finger at this point so be prepared) I have also used Crayola crayons to fill in the scratches, heating the wax into the scratch. It works ok. but not full proof repair.

I always wondered why mobile audio installers always have a heat gun hanging on the wall!

Seriously tho...thanks for the advice. I'll have to give that a shot after I install my new Sparco Grip pedals (can't wait!!)
