Removing scratch from windshield

Postby ram11397 » Wed Aug 01, 2012 11:54 am



Hi,
I followed the how do on adding a vent to the windshield but unfortunately the dremmel slipped and i got a scratch on the shield,so i been using 400 to 1500 grain paper wet sanding the scratch and then polish and buffing with a electric hand buffer it as worked pretty good so far but its still there. Is there another way to remove???

If that don't fix it , you have two options, live with the results or replace it. Good luck, let us know how it turns out. pictures would be great !

Hard to see but the scatch is almost gone took a few hours on and off sanding and buffing.

I've used rubbing compound on the windshield and buffed it out with my electric buffer, worked well for me.

Airplane windshields are very expensive. We used to wax the area that had skuffs. It got rid of much of it.

Try some plastic polish. I had some I bought for my jeep wrangler windows and used it on my wing windshield and it works great. Bought in JC whitney, it comes in 3 grits course-fine. Good luck
