...and I used pretty much the same technique to come up with this...
Weapons of choice were a Dremel and the biker's favourite toothpaste, Solvol Autosol...
...used at first with white spirit as a "coolant" and then finally flooded with water to create a very fine slurry of cutting paste. But even with the Dremel on the slowest speed a split second's inattention caused this as it momentarily dried out and the soft polishing mop instantly bit into the acrylic leaving it scrapped...
Flame polishing is the way to go I think using a micro-jet jeweller's propane torch.

Nice one Guv, I did a similar thing to a crystal using a Dremmel, so only hand polish now. It is time-consuming and makes my fingers ache, but it makes for a better finish imo.
Here is yesterday's find, nothing much but it interests me. No name, with an AS movement, non-worker but for 25 pence who cares?

For bad scratches I used fine sandpaper and then polywatch/displex.
