    Glass Polishing Tip - Passenger Side First

    Glass Polishing Tip - Passenger Side First


    Whenever yo are going to polish glass ALWAYS start on the passenger side of the windshield or side windows NEVER where the driver looks through the glass.

    This is a safety precaution just in case something goes wrong with you glass polishing process.

    Re: Glass Polishing Tip - Passenger Side First

    Glass polishing is a bit of a mystery to me. I don't see a lot of posts about it. Doesn't seem like many people use the cerium oxide/glass polishing pads. I have seen you post that you can just use any clear coat safe compound/polish which seems reasonable.

    I have some scratches in my back glass from someone running the back wiper without a blade in it. Seems unlikely I could buff that out with a DA...

    I took a lot of before and after pictures of this project today.

    To do it and you guys justice - I need to offload onto my computer and share them when I’m able to type using a full size ergo keyboard and my arm holder uppers.

    Next week.


    I did wash this car and the GT500KR today including machine scrubbing the tires.

    Check out my Facebook page for lots of pics.
