soft top window scratches. Any Cures?

I made the mistake of unzipping my rear window in the dark while it was dirty a while back. While unzipping I guess my knuckle dragged the dirt and left some pretty nasty scratches around the opening. This isn't a huge deal to me. It's a Jeep and its probably gonna get dirty and scratched and after a few years you're probably looking at new windows anyways. But in the meantime if there is some sort of mend I would love to know if anyone has tried or if there is anyone out there with a product for this. I was thinking about trying a spray wax or something but I'm just not sure of the right approach.

Maguires and Novus both make a scratch remover for plastic windows that will work for smaller scratches. Should be able to find it at a local auto parts place.

Novus has a 3 step system that works wonders.
I did it a couple times with my old factory soft top and the windows still looked new when i got rid of it.
