There are very fine sandpapers, on the order of 1200-1600 grit made 
specifically for polishing the scratches out of glass.  This should do the 
job nicely.  Check at the local glass shop for a lead.  They may also have 
better ideas about repairing plexi scratches.

Close enough.  Less than half a gallon short.

Their transport strength and reduced risk of fracturing is supposed to be 
their biggest advantage.  Just make sure it is sitting flat and doesn't have 
a stone or tirejack or something caught under it.
