Scratches on anodized aluminium

From: David Graves <david.graves<-a>

The Art Gallery of Western Australia is considering acquiring an
anodized aluminium object that has some fairly disfiguring scratches
to the anodized surface.  The oxide layer has a dull grey appearance
and has not been dyed.  Has anyone had any experience with methods
to disguise damage such as this?
