No problem. Just need to file smooth, and sand up to a HIGH grit sandpaper. I mean like automotive store sandpaper ment to sand car paint. Its like glass, if its all scuffed and scratched up, it looks like crap, but if you can get it back to smooth, almost polished, it will go back to the clear look.
Oh, and DON'T snap off any plastic. either saw or file it off. When you bend translucents like that, you break a larger deeper area of the plastic on a molecular level, and everything around the area you're snapping will get a wierd white color to it. That is basically because you have separated the molecules and no matter how smooth you try to get the surface, on a really small scale its pitted and will never be polished and clear again, unless you dig deep enough, sand past it.
