Need helpwith polycarbonate

This is my first time on here and I am throwing myself at the mercy of anyone who can help me.
I am building a display rack for a beauty salon to display fingernail polish bottles.The shelves are like mini stairs and on the front of each tread is a clear poly carbonate (Lexan) guard rail. I had to glue the poly onto the edge of the shelf with super glue because it was the only thing i could find that would bond to the poly and dry clear. In the process I smeared superglue on the Lexan. Is there a way to clean it off or am i going to have to scrap it and start over? I tried Acetone and it clouds the poly. It also did not do a good job removing the super glue.
All help is appreciated,

Unless you can rub the spot out sufficient with rubbing compound I don't think there is much you can do. In the future use clear silicone caulk to glue the lexan in. Any that oozes out can be cleaned off with a dry cloth.
