I've had my res for a few years now, and because of my case, it wasn't mounted as best as it should be, so there is some slight scuffing on the clear portion of it. This is an EK Res. What would be the best approach for getting these scuffs out and returning the luster the clear used to have there?

Sand it with some really fine sand paper and purchase some polish and polish. Not sure why you didn't google how to polish acrylic.

DO NOT USE SANd PAPER > you will not get the look you want and end up with more scufs than you want . . Just start with a really good polish and a polishing pad for your 4 in grinder or dremmel .
I have had really good luck with novus plastic polish kit . gives you everything you need in the kit and it is super cheap .

Awesome stuff. Thank you very much. I have a dremmel, but I can't recall what buffing pads I have for it right now, I'll look into it. But I'll add that stuff to my list and pick it up soon. Thank you.
