Yeh bad thing about the plastic in these Titan's they scratch really easy. Luckily the couple scratches I have are close to the bottom on the passenger side below the glove box. They are a pain. Haven't really seen anything that will make them go away though. Depending on how deep it was you may be able to get some reeeeaaaalllly fine sandpaper and put a little water on it and sand it just a bit. Not sure though. I have used this technique on computer case mods before.

no problem with the dash scratches. Stop at any body shop or paint supply store and just buy the dye kit in the same color as your dash. Voila, no more different colored scratches....

Luckily I haven't had to do it to my Titan yet but I've done it on past vehicles that I've owned. I can't for the life of me remember the brand name that I bought but I purchased it from a paint supply store that specialized in vehicle body shop supplies.

Get the one that looks like a touch up kit, it will have a small brush attached to the lid. For tiny scratches you can use a toothpick to fill them in so you don't get any color build-up on the good surface. Be sure to match it up perfect because it's a dye not a paint so it will change the color of anything it touches. Good luck and be sure to take some pics, that would be an interesting how-to article to have in the Tech section..
