High gloss scratch removal?

Hello everyone!

I recently purchased 2007 F150 Harley Edition with the piano black high gloss dash panels that were neglected by the previous owner, they are very scratched and in some spots very dull. Is there a way to remove the scratches and buff to a high gloss shine or would I need to replace the panels.. any insight would be helpful...

Thanks in advance!

Hello 07 Harley and welcome to Ford Tough!
If the surface is painted/cleared, I would try a quality polish first like Zaino's Z5 & Z2. If that doesn't fix it to your satisfaction, then find a quality paint shop that could try heating it up with a buffer. Failing that, I would have the panels painted rather than replacing. If it's high gloss now, it's likely painted from the factory anyways.
