    they sell acrylic buffing kits at plastics shops, i dunno if theres one in kingston, you can check with hobby stores...

    also maybe HD or rona will have them

    There is a couple of ways depending on how deep they are, you can get a buffing compound that will take out a lot of hazing caused by surface scratches
    If its a little deeper you can hit it with a torch and it will become much less noticable. Be very careful if you choose the torch option, and I highly recommend you practice on a scrap piece first so as not to get it too hot that it burns and blisters.

    Cheers,
    Chad
