scratches on the guard face

How do you get rid of the scratches on the face of the guard after it has been pinned and soldered.
I made the mistake of trying to just clean up that little bit of a mark that I made on the face of the guard getting the solder off. Now I have a fine network of light scratches all over the face of the guard and no matter how I try sanding them they will not go away. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
