This is the biggest downfall with acrylic. You ca get scratch removal kits for acrylic at some online stores or LFS. I have never used them and do not know how well they work.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
