tring to find some where to do this to get a quote, or see if anyone knows any faster way to do it myself (besides the lettle 3x2 pad and sand paper by hand).  I have a 300 gallon tank, it is empty right now, but has alot of light scratches, and a few deep scratches.  I have heard somewhere about someone using a power sander to fix there's. Anyone have any Ideas or know places I could get a quote to do it for me??

If it is Acrylic then I would call Marine Aquatics.

use a buffing wheel like the ones used to buff a car and get about a 3000
grit or better buffing compound. you have got to be very careful because
the wheel will get the acrylic very hot very fast and can cause the plastic
to melt. just go over it until it looks good. It`s pretty easy to do and
shouldn`t take long with all the right tools.
