My iPad was a big scratch on the screen about 1.5 inches long. Is there any way I can repair it without getting a digitizer?

A while back somebody used an automobile buffer and rubbing compound and was successful. It's worth a try and the worst thing that can happen is you buff the screen to a milky haze.
