A new panel would be the only real way to get it back to normal. I have seen them on ebay. I would take the opportunity to respray the whole unit though in a different color!

I scratched mine as well. On the glossy surface. These things scratch quicker than ikea furniture if you are not careful. I don't know if this would help you or not, but the results for me were great...

In your case I would try a dremel with felt wool polishing wheel with some automotive scratch remover. I do think you'll be able to minimize the scratches.

I used the headlight restore kit that I use for my truck :)

here is the scratch. The picture does not really show, but its a fairly deep scratch. I was bummed out when I made it.
