Soft top window scratches

Just installed and still sore from it my twill soft top. Never really even touched the windows but the rear already seems to have hairline scratches. What do most peeps use to clean these windows? They seem very delicate and I'm sure scratches are inevitable but come on there brand new. By the way top looks good but could be the single most difficult thing I've ever done haha

Novus or Plexius. Take your pick. Carried by most any motorcycle shops.

Novus or Plexus is used for plastic windows.

+1 This stuff was made for motorcycle windshields and helmet face shields. Works perfect on Jeep windows. If your windows are really dusty be sure and hose them off first or no cleaner will keep from scratching. Either Novus or Plexus are like magic. These are products that really do work.

My Dad recommended a cleaner/polish called 210. It's made for the isinglass on boat biminis and he has used it for years. He said it will help prevent minor scratching, after you've used it a few times. It's a polish so it builds up a protective barrier and it's also supposed to help with the windows fogging (which happens here in the FL humidity). I used it for the first time today and so far am really pleased with it.

x3 on Plexus. Find it at any motorcycle shop. Seems expensive but it's amazing, and goes a long way!

Do they sell any type of protective film for the plastic windows, like a lamin-x or something similar to what you put on a smartphone screen? It would protect your windows and when it gets scratched up just peel it off and put a new one on.
