Soft top windows
the plastic windows of my soft top have become very cloudy and covered in tiny scratches, making them hard to see through, especially if the sun is reflecting off them. Is there an effective way to resolve this?

they are also pretty wrinkly, is that something that can be fixed without replacing the fabric? i know the top is tight enough.

The stock windows on my YJ were like that, but the rest of the top was in horrible condition so I just bought a whole new top. If you want the new look I know that quadratec sells single pieces of tops so you could get the front windows new :D

Adkjoe: I read this post and was saying to myself "oh, I'm going to need to remember where that neat video was of the guy buffing his windows...I'll never find it..."

I'm glad you remembered!

RatFink: We probably don't RECOMMEND using a power buffer on your windows. But it sounds like you haven't got much to lose. We do sell replacement panels (the whole zip in part, not just the 'glass'). But they ain't cheap, and they won't exactly match your top if it has faded. And I'm just assuming you have a Bestop.

Thanks guys!
