Default Dash and guage cover

Does anyone know if it is possible to replace the plastic covering the guages on the dash. Mine is all scratched and looks terrible and I want to get it replaced.

Have you tried Mequiar'* PlastX? That'* what I use.

My off-topic foray is now over. Your regularly scheduled programming will be brought to you by anyone that has taken a 2k cluster apart.

This weekend I was looking at how scratched and dirty my plastic gauge cover was becoming and I couldn't get the spots off with anything. Plus I think that I was scratching it more and more every time I tried something new. I was contemplating finding a new plastic cover out of the junk yard. It had been suggested to use Meguiar'* Plastix. Couldn't find it but I found the professional detail stuff intead. One cleaner and one polish. I can tell you that I am a believer now. It took out every single spot on that plastic and most of the scratches to a point were you can't even tell if the plastic is there now. I catch myself poking my finger at it to make sure it is still there and I know it is. I then hand buffed my headlight on one side with it for like 10 seconds and I could totally see a difference. The light still needs a lot of work but it was definately brighter and clearer then the other side. It was a little more expensive than the Plastix, but I think that it was totally worth it. Paid $17 for the two bottles and one Meguiar'* gold class microfiber towel. Worth the money if someone needs to clean and spruce up plastic.
