This will work...

Sand it back >>WET<< with some 2000 grit sandpaper. Then polish the f**k out of it, it will come up as new.

yeah, good stuff, a mate got a scratch out of his laptop monitor with toothpaste!

does the cluster surround look that white in person? does it bother you whilst your driving?

you'll need to remove the ash tray, stereo surround, dash facia and unplug all the buttons/clock/trip comp to get to it. there are 4 screws holding it in, one on each corner. and two plugs on the bottom either side.

once you've got the cluster out of the dash, its jsut a matter of undoing 2 screws and a couple of tabs
