How do I repair (or replace) scratched plastic lamp panels?

I bought this cool lamp
and wired it into a junction box. However, in the process of taking it home, fixing up the internal wiring, and hanging it up, I managed to scrape it up pretty bad.
The wood faces are connected by four 1/8" thick plastic panels with a yellow tint. They're sort of a rounded rectangle shape, flat, and have small drill holes at the top and bottom for woodscrews that hold them in place. The plastic panels are almost all scratched, and in some cases the scratches are up to 1/2" wide, which is pretty unsightly.
Is there a way to either remove the scratches, or craft new panels? I don't mind doing some work, but I have no idea how one works with plastic, or where to start.
