    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.

     

    The need for is growing and spring is time to bring out the BARR"S AM for the shake down run, hope all of you are ready as I am.

    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.
