    I have the same problem in my 3 yr old car. I see that the RT door cladding has come off in a small section.
    It does not look bad as its towards the B-pillar and its only a small patch. So i've let it be.

    One solution is to get a can of COM-PAINT its available in Reliance autozone and choose the color that best matches your dashboard and simply spray it.

    This is the final picture the dashboard! Its been Painted and ArmourAll'd (hence the wet look). About the Beige portions still haven't found matching paint cans.

    You wont find a matching shade.
    Go to a Du Pont paint shop,and ask them to make the required color,and they will do so.
    But you will have to purchase the minimum quantity,which is about 100ml.

    Would these be available in aerosol cans? Or is it just paint that needed to go into a spray gun at the painters.

    A stupid car perfume screwed up the switch console on my ride and I was considering some kind of DIY if I can get a aerosol can.
