    Are you saying that it’s very hard to remove wiper scratches from windshields? I never had luck but never gave it 100% effort. Was wondering if I should try now as I’m about to re-apply PBL Glass Coating.

    Have seen mentions of Ceri w Rayon pads can do that to some lighter scratches but apparently quite a messy process.

    Dunno too much about it but someone somewhere suggested if ya go at it too hard, can affect the optical clarity?

    Safelite exists for a reason windshield coating

    Any polish or compound will do.

    It's really not that messy. It's no worse than compounding paint. I used Ceriglass on the windows of my son's first car - a 2004 Chevy Malibu - because of all the years of film, wiper scratches, sand etching etc. and had great results. The key to polishing windows it is patience and not expecting instant gratification.

    Thanks, I won’t spend my time and effort trying to ‘correct’ my windshield then. I’ve got enough impossible tasks to go around.

    I used a machine to remove all the coatings and imperfections.
