    Some how I did it; I suspect I slid my blue Beretta hard case against cardboard with staples in it. I have a bunch of fine white scratches now.

    How can I repair it or darken the scratch?

    Is there some kind of stain or chemical?

    Maybe blue magic marker?

    thanks guys

    Depends on how deep they are and how much trouble you want to go to to get rid of them. most plastic is heat sensitive, therefore heat applied could melt down anything that might be sticking up.(your pick as to source of heat, thermo welders (really hot hair dryer looking device) or you could click ur bic with flame near the scratch. If that sounds too risky for you, might use one of the various products used on auto upholstery to fill in the slight scratch and at least make it less noticable until it fills up with dirt. best luck

    try some rubbing alcohol on an inconspicious place and see how it works.

    I applied a propane torch to it at medium flame and it cleaned right up
