How do you fill plastic?

This is the results of trying to scrape off excess super glue.........How can I fill the scrapes?

I don't think you can. Sorry.

Should have used some adhesive remover like Googone. That stuff can remove tree sap so it should clean up super glue.

those are plastic right? Did you try Plexus? Try Renovo with an electric screwdriver buffer attachment.

I have some Plexus that I will try right now.

The Goo Gone wipped of any left over residue but not it's onlt the scrapes/scratches I have to get rid of. Looks better,but it's still not how it should be.

THe Plexus will clean clear plastic, it won't get out scratches.
You'll need the Renovo for that with the electric power. YOu can use it on the clear plastic softop window too.

I found out the lense covers for the cluster is removable so I will call Sunset to see if they can somehow order a new one for me,if not I will wait till a junkyard gets a messed up in that they will let me take it from. It not even that bad it's just one of those things that's gonna annoy me. Oh well,live & learn.

Thanks for all the input.

I saw an ad on TV the other day for a liquid that's supposed to remove scratches from eyeglasses. In the demo they put some pretty major scratches on, and they seemed to disappear when this magic juice was applied.

I didn't catch the name, but some Googling might get you there

Were you trying to superglue those silver rings on top of the gauges? Next time use a gel superglue, it won't run like the regular liquid stuff.
