Cleaning rear window

I have an 87 wrangler and it has a plastic or plexiglas rear window. Well it's like frosted and impossible to see out of. Anyone have this problem? And how did anyone get it clear again?? Thanks guys!

Hardtop? Probably not stock since they came with glass... If it is plexi or lexan it probably isnt going to be fixable...

I bet he is talking about a soft top, you can use some cutting polish, the same stuff for your car paint, to remove some of the haze. There is a video of it some where... ah here it is.

I think the rear glass is really expensive, you could probably sell the one ya got, looks well made, just foggy, still keeps rain out.

Might want to try the headlight polish system-cost about 20 bucks-what have you got to loose? Just start low in the corner so it doesn't show from driver's seat.

Yea, that stuff is just cutting polish for plastic. My original idea should still work as long as it's plastic or Plexiglas
