plastic scratches!

ok...how should i start this out..well i was out and about today with a carload of people and i made a stop at the gas station. point is that while i was in the store my rear seat passenger thought i would be funny to honk the horn while i was in the store. (don't ask my why) but he decided to use a tennis racquet that was lying on the floor to do it therefore scratched the hell out of my steering wheel![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG] they aren't *that* deep, though, but still... what do you guy suggest i use to get rid of the scratches. (there are also some other scratches on the hard plastic on the doors--that was another incident) i have no idea what to use--just makes me angry considering that i just bought my car a few weeks ago. thanx...

I worked for a Van Conversion company, and they use a butane torch. They would hold it away from the area and just barely go over it. It eventually dissapeared. i would not trust myself to do it though!

geeze! sounds a little 'ris-que' to me. well, guess if i'm feeling up to it i could try using my mom's portable butane hair curler thingy![IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG] i did, however, get the superficial scratches from the steering wheel by buffing it 4ever. that just leaves the deep ones and the ones on the door. oh well, i guess i'll just have to live w/ it...

It takes some big ones to try the butane torch, mine aren't big enough!
