You could try something like this. I've used this a number of times on various things and while it does require some elbow grease, I've successfully satisfied my inner anal tendencies.
Edit: I know nothing of regulations, so not sure if this will help. Thought maybe you were concerned about how it looked.
Replied to a similar post recently:

Mask of the trim so you don't polish off the gold (or whatever) plating, and use Novus Plastic Polish
Instead of sanding first off, I would recommend you try something like Novus Plastic Polish. I ended up picking it up after having issues clearing up my headlights after sanding. I've used it to remove oxidation on another friend's TC with really good results.
Not at all.
I have two lights mounted this way. The one that's a little further forward is getting it's finish blasted off, and the one that's a little further back has a small piece of the front lens sanded down. They both work perfectly well and the lenses are easy to clean with some plastic polish.

Here's the lens wear on my 11.5" SBR: http://i.imgur.com/04HNaZm.jpg. I've rotated it to even it out a bit.
There are a few brands of plastic polish on the market. Another thing that people recommend is a vigorous rubbing with toothpaste.
I looked around and found some plastic / acrylic cleaner that's suppose to work well with case windows.
I ordered some and should have it Friday. I'll let you know how it turns out!
Link to make a replacement 67.5V "B" battery from 9V batteries.
I have a hi-def image of the label of an Eveready #455 (45V) B battery if you want it. Actual size, so you can cut the cardboard holder a *bit* smaller, then wrap a print of the image onto the cardboard. Use Photoshop or another paint program to change the numbers.
Plastic polish would remove the oxidation from the case. Get the Novus kit.
You might try Novus on the scratches, this stuff rocks:

A little late to this, but get some clear spray lacquer https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-1906830-Lacquer-Spray-11-Ounce/dp/B0009XCKGA, Home Depot or Lowes will also carry it.
To apply, spray a light coat, dry, 2000+ grit sand paper very light. Repeat 5-10 times. Then use a polish like Novus Plastic Polish -- will only need 2 and then 1 for this use, 3 is for heavy scratches -- https://www.amazon.com/NOVUS-7100-Plastic-Polish-Kit/dp/B002UCYRZU to clean up after the last coat.
Glad to answer any other questions
brosader's idea isn't a bad one either. Admit you have sinned and tarnished their otherwise beautiful product. Beg for forgiveness. You may just end up with a sacrificial pane to practice lasercutting on.
You want this stuff: http://www.amazon.com/NOVUS-7100-Plastic-Polish-Kit/dp/B002UCYRZU
I personally use Novus shine products:
Depending on how deep the scratches are, you could probably use some Meguires' plastic polish to clean it up.
I've also heard good things about this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002UCYRZU/ref=mp_s_a_1_fkmr2_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1502047687&amp;sr=8-2-fkmr2&amp;pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&amp;keywords=meguires+plastic+polish But have never used it, personally.
for scratches I highly recommend this stuff used it to get scratches from my Vive
Here, NZXT is not going to help you, they are going to be too busy trying to damage control their HUE+'s frying peoples' PCs.
As mentioned by another modeler you can use polishing pads.
Micro Mesh are good. These pads are also useful, I use them wet and in order. I also cut them into smaller pieces to make polishing easier.
As for a polishing compound, I found this one to be good. It also works well on the lenses of modern 1:1 size cars if you need them to be as bright as new. ;^)
The only one I can vouch for is the Novus plastic polishing compound. It's what they use on stormtrooper armor when it gets worn due to use. There is probably more out there but I haven't researched.
Use the finest polish you can.
If you really do have a scratch they can be removed with something like this if you are very very careful.
If you are using glasses you probably should look at getting lens protectors. Links to product in description of images
Sure, I use this set. I start with #1, the blue bottle, and give the plastic a general cleaning, just to make sure there aren't any particles on the plastic that are going to gouge. After that, I use #2 (the red bottle) and a lint free cloth and just rub the hell out of the plastic. You should always try to polish at 90 degree angles so you don't end up with streaks. By that I mean polish in one direction, then polish 90 degrees different from that direction. Once I'm satisfied with that, I give it another polishing with #1.
I've used this on PTZ domes that have gotten scratched up. It worked very well. It was a fuckload of work.
Out of all the products I've tried, I have the best results with a multi-step system. This one works really well.
You can get some of the haze out, and some of the lighter swirls and scratches, but you'll never put that brand new and poppin' look back into something that's been well used. Plastic is just not made to last like that.
I recommend using a plastic polish. You can do it by hand but if you have a drill, or even better a random orbital buffer it goes pretty quickly.
Not all is lost
You can use this to get the plexi top back to it's brand new condition.
I did high end picture framing for many years and this is the best way to polish acrylic: Novus
I wouldn't expect a miracle, but I wonder if Novus Plastic Polish is worth a try? Or—in all serousness here—try polishing it with toothpaste.
Fun fact : You can use plastic polish and a soft cloth or sock to get better results than a buffing machine can offer in most instances. Those machines sometimes make read issues worse. I recommend Novus #2.
Four or so drops on a disc rubbed in with tight circular wipes works wonders.
Normally I would stabilize stuff with a vacuum chamber (details on my setup here)
With these I didn't bother since I needed them right away. I grabbed some really horrible scraps of the spalted maple and shaped/sanded. Bits were trying to fall off so I grabbed Solarez and did a few coats, curing with my little UV gel manicure light for three minutes between coats. Once that was done I sanded out the lumpy spots and took it to 600 grit. I then polished it with Novus #2 polish...boom, done.
Even with the minimal amount of effort I put into the handles, they turned out amazing. In the future I could spend a little more time and have a perfect finish in less than a day. The resin is what they coat pool sticks and surfboards with so the handles feel like that...not the same as a linseed finish but not totally plastic feeling, either.
If you don't go the tempered glass route try buying Novus. It's a great plastic polishing compound. It should be able to get rid of the scratches.
Don't worry too much, you should be able to clean it up. Here are the steps I'd take, from least invasive to most...
Back to my initial statement: I have a suspicion that this will come off pretty easily! (and sorry for the wordy response...)
Did you previously attempt to clean it with a harsh cleaner and scrubber? If so, then they can leave small scratches on its surface leaving behind a cloudy look.
If that happened, you can attempt to 'repair' by using Novus 1 to clean the surface, then use Novus 2 or 3 and buff until the scratches are virtually invisible.
If you go this route, show us the results.
I use this to buff scratches out the windows of Funko Pops. It should work for this, but this scratch does seem pretty gnarly.
I like my PEI shiny so the bottom of prints have a more glass-like appearance. After a couple of years on this .06 in thick PEI bed, I had made a few gouges and scratches on the bed that were affecting my print quality. A quick go over with drill mounted polishing sponges and Novus plastic polishing compound really shines the surface right back up.
This stuff works great on your worn car headlights too!
I just bought this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002UCYRZU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1

Try this stuff!
The clear parts will take a bit of work but you should actually be able to get them looking like new. (If there is still paint left on the part) Start taking off the paint by sanding with a high grit sandpaper mounted with double sided tape to a flat surface. Then I'd suggest buying this: http://www.amazon.com/NOVUS-7100-Plastic-Polish-Kit/dp/B002UCYRZU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1451329007&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=novus and working your way through that, in the end it should look like new. I use it on every clear piece after I have removed the flash and sanded away the nub marks. You can even apply a gloss clear coat after that step as well to get a better than new shine.
As far as the paint beading goes, I think you diagnosed the problem already, since you aren't using primer on clear parts washing them is crucial. Do everything you can to have optimal painting conditions as well, and be sure to spray lightly, take your time, and SLOWLY build up layers.
For the palmrest area I would VERY CAREFULLY use a Magic Eraser - do not touch the screen with it. For the outer shell I would use GooGone for the sticker residue and then this Novus Plastic Polish Kit to remove scratches/scruffs.
My friend, let me introduce you to Novus Plastic Polish
I’m guessing you meant to ask how to remove the scratches, and if that’s the case your best bet is a Dremel (or similar) with a set of buffing pads and a 3 step polish like Novus. You could do it by hand if you don’t have a Dremel, but you’d need some serious patience.
My brother used something like this to remove the scratches from him lenses that were caused by his glasses rubbing on them.
You jdon't need a buffing wheel. Just a microfiber cloth, some polish and some elbow grease. The buffing wheel would certainly speed things up, but pointless to buy for a one time use.
This is the 3 step process product that I'd recommend.
In the future, know that those magic erasers are abrasive. Good luck.
some sort of acrylic/lexan. Depending on the severity, you can try polishing it out, it may not be completely fixable, but atleast minimized.
I used this on my fish tank... http://www.amazon.com/NOVUS-7100-Plastic-Polish-Kit/dp/B002UCYRZU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1456792885&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=Acrylic+Polishing+Kit
Interesting. This? Is it tedious to get a uniform polish around surface detail, or no?
I am considering ordering this polishing kit. I'm not sure if you would be interested, but some reviews hav said it can work on polycarbonate.
I use this kit
Try Novus 7100 plastic polish kit.
The wife's C300 has piano black interior trim which got crazy stains from air fresheners and other crap I tried to clean with. Using a micro buffer is suggested. The forum I found the Novus on had people who had the same problem you are having and it cleared it up well.
Novus plastic polish is the shit. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002UCYRZU/
You might try Novus products:

But as always I'd try a small spot somewhere you won't be able to see it first in case you don't like the results (and maybe not go straight to 3 right away).

At $17 it's almost as much as the pen, but you could polish your headlights or other plastic surfaces to justify the cost
Your results might be similar without wet sanding but I couldn't tell you for certain.
Get this. It will do the trick.

that might work, they have smaller quantities on ebay for cheaper, i have been meaning to try it but haven't had a chance yet
Don't use window cleaners as the chemicals inside (like ammonia) can be abrasive and cause hairline cracks in acrylic. Window cleaner is designed for glass and not plastic, which is why you shouldn't use it on your TV and monitors either.
Use something like Brillianize or Novus, which is a dedicated plastic polish/cleaner and has silicone in it to prevent scratching from abrasive materials. For more info, check out this YouTube video.
As a last ditch effort, you could try using a small amount of petroleum jelly like Vaseline to fill in hairline scratches.
You use Novus #1?
I'd recommend a standard Magic Eraser type thing available at any grocery store in the US: https://www.amazon.com/Mr-Clean-Original-Cleaning-Packaging/dp/B001339ZMW
If it really abraded the surface, you may need to polish it with something like Novus III & II: https://www.amazon.com/Novus-7100-Plastic-Polish-Kit/dp/B002UCYRZU/
