    Windshield Polishing?

    I have a surface scratch along the wiper arc on my 911E windshield.

    Is there some kind of polish to remove this or is the only solution to replace the windshield?

    Thanks.

    Yes, there is such a thing. I purchase some glass polish from an auto parts store, and have used it on several areas that resisted any other means of cleaning. It will take out scratches, it's just a matter of elbow grease. Good luck!

    Thanks for the help Scott.

    Would you happen to have the name of that glass polish handy?

    Eastwood has that, I think.

    If very light, you can try toothpaste.

    Sandy-
    The stuff I used is called "No Touch Auto Glass Stripper." It is abrasive, so I think it might work as long as the scratches are not too deep. It will certainly clean up all sorts of other blemishes.

    also you can use jewelers polish. Jewelers (hence the name) use it to get scratches out of watches and other crystals. Never figured out where to buy it though. I don't know if a jeweler would sell it or not
