It i impossible to evaluate the condition of your cylinder from a picture. I can see the scratches but I can't measure the bore or evaluate the depth and roughness of the scratches. O-rings really don't like rough surfaces and it appears you hit that with cylinder with some sort of abrasive cleaner. I would be more concerned about that than the scratches so at a minimum polish it well before reusing it.
If it were mine I'd be inclined to postpone reassembly until I could round up the money for a new one because I simply wouldn't want to have to redo the job anytime soon. But that is something you will have to evaluate for your personal situation. That said, if you did have to go back in you are equipped and experienced so it would not be a horribly demanding or expensive job.
