    yes that looked like my glass. i used griots fast correcting cream with a lake country foamed wool pad and it cleaned it all up but i had to work it in for a bit since the window hasnt been cleaned in years. turned out great just a little hard to get around the corners.

    Re: Polishing glass question

    I recently had the bad idea to polish my windshield with a 3 inch wool pad and Wolfgang Perfekt Glass Polish. The wool pad was new and it covered my car in wool bits and it slung polish all over the place. My first experience with wool pads was not a good one. I’m going back to microfiber pads. Also it didn’t cut through the road film.

    I successfully removed the wiper trails that had been on the windshield of my DTS using Meguiars M100.

    Before:





    M100 with Megs microfiber pad and HFDA.





    After:





    It did a phenomenal job! It wasnít even alot of work either. Maybe I got lucky? Iíll take it, because my windshield had been bugging the heck out me.Polishing glass question

    Re: Polishing glass question

    Wow thatís pretty remarkable! Just with M100. I have M101. I wonder if it does the same thing. Next time I come across a windshield in need of polishing, Iím going to try it. I have old surbuf pads I can try first before getting MF pads.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Iíve never tried M101. I went with M100 because you can really feel the grit when you rub the compound between your fingers. I felt like it might be up for the task and it worked.

    From that description, M101 sounds similar. Itís the only product I got total results from even working by hand. Iíd be very surprised if it couldnít work on glass since M100 did so well.

    Re: Polishing glass question

    The polishing with M100 definitely got rid of any beading on my windshield. This is what it looked like this morning.





    I didnít have a coating on it before, but it did bead prior to polishing it, the way all glass normally does.

    I'm pretty surprised a paint polish got those trails out--and when did Meg's start making blue polishes?

    That's virtually impossible, unless you're using it on a rotary buffer and you keep buffing at the exact same place for minutes, without moving the buffer even a tiny bit. Glass is extremely hard, and even with ceriglass and ample pressure it takes a lot of time until you can actually abrade a significant amount of it. As long as you're using a relatively large pad (so anything above 4 inches) and using some common sense, not tracing just the scratches exactly, but working also the surrounding area, it will be impossible for you to create any distortions in the glass this way.

    My first time with a wool pad I did my friend car with a velcro 3M 9" wool pad, me, the car, and everything around was covered in wool fibers. Once it broke in it wasn't to bad.
