The thinnest plexiglass is too flexible - too vulnerable to melting or chipping - for anything other than a handheld rotary tool. Marking your cutting line beforehand with a pencil or similarly erasable utensil before you start will help to ensure a clean cut, as will ensuring that your cutting tool is operating between 10, and 15, RPM. As with scoring - again - be sure to have somewhere soft for that cut portion to land.
Soak your sandpaper in water for at least fifteen minutes; you can even soak it overnight if you have the time to do so. Next, add the buffing attachment to the drill and apply the polishing compound to the plexiglass. Buff to a perfect polish.
