How to take out stains on seats and scratches on plastic interior

Recommended Posts

Hey guys :)

I have these stains on my seats that I can't get out on my R34. what do you guys use for cleaning on seats? 

And also, how can I get these scratches off the radio surround plastic panels? I looks kinda deep like it was scratched with a screw driver from previous owners.

Heat gun should work on the scratches. But may cause more damage if not done with care...

The seat needs a wet extraction vac, those carpet cleaners that you can hire from supermarkets work fine

Hi 

I have that centre console with minor scratches if you are interested. Its a pain to install.

The scratches are from the audio installer.

Someone looks like they had a blast on that seat and couldn't hold on to anything so he scratched your panel and left a big happy ending stain. USE SCOTCH GAURD AND RUB IT OFF WITH A CLOTH, or any carpet cleaner from a AUTOSHOP !! The scratches looks bad :( just pull the panel out and like wrap it with carbon fibre or some sort

I had  the same problem with the seats on the 34 when I had stock seats. You do so much as rest a cold can of coke there for half a second and suddenly you have that ugly mark.

I was able to remove it with just your common autobarn-esque type of interior seat cleaner, it actually responded pretty well. As for the scratches I have similar problem and the surround and gearbox is like $80 but I am interested in the heat gun method too if it can be better explained.

One of those things that makes the car look awful during the day but looks fine at night :P

A commercial automotive trimmer or upholsterer will know what solutions to use because they have them.

For seats, I've just used Polyglaze Upholstery Cleaner or a brand of Carpet cleaning agent.

Might have to pull the carpet out and leave it in the sun. The pew pew rays should remove most of the smell.

Pull it out, wash it with carpet cleaner and a gurney/pressure washer and put it back in

Probably a job best left for the warm summer sun though
