    I had a GMC Yukon with scratches, from people cleaning the windshield with a big hand of snow, yeap rocks in the snow. Problem being that it was right in the center of the wind shield and I could not remove the scratches without removing the glass. I tried a section near the drivers side and found that I could not get the polish to remove anything. That said, what is the best way to remove these kinds of scratches? I have been able to get out the fine ones in side windows ok with minimal amount polish.

    Typically to really correct glass imperfections, you'll need a high speed rotary buffer that spins up to 10k - 15k RPMs. In conjunction with a glass polish minor imperfections that typically cannot be buffed out can with the proper products and tools. I usually suggest leaving glass correction up to the pros because you never want to hinder your visibility while driving if you screw anything up.

    A lot of insurance policies have a low or no deductible to replace your glass.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I thought that with the polishing compound I would be able to get these out. When I checked to see how deep they were they seened to be just surfice and do able. I have been able to remove that fine fogging that takes place on side windows in most cases. I tell the customers that I can make it more visible through the galss but deep scratchs will still be there, thanks for the reply.
