Sounds like you've frosted the window :)

A replacement panel is probably the easiest way to do this, just trim it to shape and stick it where the ruined one is.

Sometimes polishing the window can remove some scratches, but not always.

Leave it. Frosted is much classier. Now your case is unique.

if you really dont want the frosted effect

sand it with the finest sand paper you can lay your hands on, then set it on fire.
:D

seriously, heat it, hardest part will be getting some form of uniform heat at an appropriate temperature.

if you can get one, use a heatgun with variable temp.
slowly increase the tempt until it starts going shiny again.

but be wary you dont over do it, and warp it.

I've never even tried to unscratch Perspex, so I can't help you there.

I did have the thought that you could uniformly fog over the entire window and then light the side with a CCF, or even better a number of LED's. Scratches help you in that case.

Even if you decide to smooth it out, and the de-scatching job doesn't quite get it back to pristine smoothness, the light effect will still be really good.

Also, people keep saying Sand Paper. Emery Paper might be a better thing to ask for, as I find it usually leaves a far smoother finish on things than sand paper of the same grade.

you can use 2pak clear to spray the panel but will need to use a thinner mix. the clear will fill in tiny scratches and smooth out the panel (and become shiny again).

however - it would be a lot of work when buying a new panel would be easier..

lol @ the uppercut comment
