That turned out pretty good. I might have to buy some of that Meguiar's stuff.

Rubicon2 I figure they are going to get scratched eventually. Though annoying I can still see out of them fine and I just don't worry about them.

Tripp Maguires MirrorGlaze is what I use on my airplane windshield and side windows. No residue film and is supposed to leave a static free surface. Have not tried it on my Jeep though.

PortMcNeillJeep I have a spray bottle of cleaner given to me by a helicopter mechanic friend, it is the stuff that they use on the 'copter windscreens, which of course must be kept pretty clear. It works like a charm on the windshields of my motorcycles and on the plastic side-curtains on the boat. As far as Jeep windows, I have a hardtop.

jgorm I removed some serious crap that was on my last jeeps rear window. I think motor oil or something got on the window and made a 1' diameter spot where it was pitted and you couldn't see through it. I hit it with a buffing wheel on my grinder (yeah, super high speed) and some white polish compound. I got a couple little tiny burns from pushing too hard, but it turned out 100x better. I use plexus for keeping the windows nice and clear.
You can see the spot here

Stagman Pledge. Used on my Goldwing shield also. Works like a charm.

Don M i wonder if this would work, it works real well to remove scratches on the windshield of my RZR

Fred1 All good information,
Thanks

XoMeLLyoX I have used Meguiar's PlastX.
02-26-2011 08:02 PM
BLK00TJ I did both on mine. I tried using a buffer but had much better luck doing it by hand. Once I was done I put a coat of pledge on. I was never able to get the strap marks out though

Tripp I agree with InfernoGirl, I've used Pledge on plastic windows for years. Airplanes, boats you name it. Maguires is good too. Pledge can yellow over time however.
02-26-2011 07:20 PM
InfernoGirl Try Pledge first. If that doesn't do it there are vids out there that show you how you can do it if you have a buffer. Keep in mind you are removing plastic, if you do it, and you can potentially cause more damage than you repair.

Rubicon2 Everything I have ever heard of usually fogs the plastic.

Polishing Soft top windows

Can you polish the windows on a soft top with plastic polish to get scratches out?
