Keep scratching it, 'til the big scratches don't stand out

Buy a skin and cover the lid. Or, buy and install a replacement lid.

Replacing that lid is a ton of work. Big time disassembly. Be prepared if you go that route.

Someone already done it before, basically the cover is a 3M carbon fibre vinyl you can buy on ebay etc and you just put it on, it is not as easy as you would think + you will need a hair dryer to do it. Check youtube for videos etc.
