Soft Top Windows?

I'm trading some parts for a 2012 soft top. Only downside is it has the clear windows (not tinted). Looks like I can get a set of the tinted windows for around $250. I read some people use spray on tint, but that seems like it would look like crap after a while.

So what do the clear windows usually sell for in good condition?

I was also thinking of keeping them and using them for trail windows since my hard top has some nice pin stripes. Do you get much window damage on the trails if you keep them in?

I don't get much damage to my soft top on the trail, if you do get some scratches they should buff out. Way cheaper than tearing up your hard top

I asked the question on ifanyonehas ever successfully buffed out scratches on Jeep windows, and what exactly they used. I got no responses.

Soft top windows get scratched and look like crap. I plan to replace mine at that point. Tinted windows show scratches less. I wouldnt use a spray on tint. The factory tint is made into the material.

I use meguiars clear plastic cleaner every once in a while after the normal washing my windows with soap routine. Removes small scratches, not big ones. Mequiars has a product to polish them as well to go with it. These are used on airplanes as well and it works very well. as well as "plasti X" plastic polish from meguiars. This product, i used on a honda atc200s (alll terrain cycles have been out of production since 1987 thanks to lawyers). The honda looked like it had been slid 5 miles upside down. Had sat outside unmoved for years. Looked like shit. Plasti x made the plastic look almost new...and if i had sanded it first, would have looked completely new.
