    scratches on my interior panels

    Hi guys. I have alot of scratches on my interior panels by the rear seats and the trunk area. This was done by the previous owner. Is there anyway I can fix this? I know one of the options will be to use paint for plastics or get some better ones. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    3m spray glue is great..

    practice makes perfect, the best procedure I've found is to first clean the surfice GOOD with a paint prep solution, coat the whole thing with glue, lay down the vinyl and work it flat, as the glue gets more tacky it will hold better and better until you have a good finished product. using a heat gun might help make the vinyl more malleable
