    Interior of 2000 Catera Sport
    Some plastic parts, around doors, on dash board, emergency brake arm.....
    Covered with thin layer of rubber, so after 12 years now that rubber easy scratching off with finger nail. And now it's look very NASTY. But you can make look batter if u scratch off that rubber with you nail all away to plastic. I did on same part look way batter!!! . The problem is!!. It's taking hours to do.
    Would u think i can use some kind of liquid to wipe it off with out damaging plastic it self. Something like lacquer thickener or acetone.

    on picture 3 u will see a side of "arm rest" how i scratch off little bit (came out so easy) and it's like that all around

    I did this a long time ago. the black "resin" can be removed with some elbow grease. I removed all of it with some Meguiers Quick Detailer (to keep the towel wet) and I used Microfiber cloths, worked great. heres what yours could look like lol.

    Acetone may melt the plastic. I get a piece from a junk yard and try different solvents and see what happens. I too had the gross problem. Never found an easy fix.
