98TJSahara Once agian, Thanks Jerry. Normally my modo is - "know on likes a know-it-all", but in your case I'll make an exception, as you seem to be full of usefull "know"ledge. Theres nothing worse than wasting good gas $$ on products that don't even work!!!

Plexus is fine as a "final-final" polish/cleaner (it's actually more of a cleaner than a polish) but it won't do anything for a plastic window that is actually scratched or hazed over. It's way too fine to take out any actual scratches.

sailsurf7713 x2 on Plexus...great stuff.

But, Plast X blows. Tried it on some headlights and foglights. Did absolutely nothing.

Flitz is way better, plus you can use it on the paint, windshield, hardtop, fenders, bumpers, etc., etc.....

Jerry Bransford Meguires and Plexus are two brands of plastic window polishes that are designed specifically to get rid of scratches and haze that can develop on plastic windows. A well equipped 4x4 or autoparts store may carry it, so will aircraft pilot supply stores, as will boating and RV supply stores. Both of those brands use several grades of polishes, getting finer as you get closer to finishing the job. It takes a lot of elbow grease but so long as the scratches aren't too bad, either brand will do a good job.

Last resort, you can find those polishes in Quadratec's and 4Wheel Drive Hardware's catalogs.

Finally, never EVER use paper towels to clean plastic windows. Paper towels are made from pulverized wood products and they do scratch plastic windows, eventually to the point where they turn hazy. Use only soapy water combined with a slightly moist cotton/terry cloth towel to clean plastic windows.

No need to apoligize. There's a disclaimer in your avatar. I've been caught in the rain waaaaaay too many times to just leave it down. Not all of us are fortunate enough to live in the sunny deep south, which reminds me, did you go to Talladega this past weekend? (thought i remember you are from AK, or AL).This is the first year I haven't been in six years. Ouch! BIG PENSKE fan here - #12!

lost mine used to be kind of foggy and I could barley see out at night. I cleaned them first with a old t shirt and windex. then I sprayed "pledge" and spread that around with a other tshirt. It helped alot and was "free". but it is not pernament, I reapplied it every couple weeks.

Murky Soft Windows?

Years of rolling and stashing them have them hard to even see through. Any way to get them more transparent again?
