Default Plastic Butt Pad

My mossberg 151k has a plastic butt pad and it has scratches and dings. How would I sand this down but get it back to the shiny slick surface it was?

I'd find one the fit the stock or fit the stock to it
But clear plasti-cote after sanding will do it--

Yeah mossberg didn't do the best of fitting the pad to the stock.

Plastic used for those tends to shrink when it gets old. Fitted OK when new- but those rifles are now 50+ yrs old.
