You might be able to sand them lightly to remove the high spots, then paint the panel with SEM Color Coat. Anything else will probably give you a difference in sheen. They are probably ABS, and solvents do not affect it to any degree.

depending on how deep your scratches are
you can use a heat gun if they are just scuffs, but their is a high probability that you ruin your parts

if you actually need to repair deep scratches or gouges
