Research pocket polisher and 3000 grit diamond powder.

I had this problem. The glass guys said that grinding the scratches out would distort the glass and compromise the integrity of the glass. I bought a used 135 with scratches in the front that beamed when the light hit them. I ended up trading it for a brand new 150 (it cost me about $500 when all was said and done).

These procedures work very well on old classic automobile glass with no issues. This is not something that will only take an hour or two to complete. It could take multiple attempts and several hours. I've personally used products of this nature in restoring old classic car glass with success

As I stated before though, your not going to be able to do it with water in it.
