There are products made for polishing aircraft windshields. Nothing worse
than landing into the sun with tiny scratches in the windshield. You could
try mail order (e.g. Sporty's Pilot Shop, Aircraft Spruce, or equivalent) or
just go down to the local small airport and ask around. Take your
controller with you and you might get a free trial?
Basically they're a fine grit in a paste. (non-clear-gel)Toothpaste is
reputed to work well, but I'd try it in an inconspicuous/noncritical place.
Do you know what kind of plastic the meter face is?
