...is there a way to buff or polish wiper marks from a windshield? These are more like a scuff and not a scratch. Thanks for anything that worked for you! :thumbsup:
I think I remember using red emery cloth with water...like a jeweler's polishing cloth. I would try that! Frankly, I would be concerned with using steel wool!I know when I wash my car I always run a 000 or 0000 grade steel wool across my windshield to cut through all the grime at the bottom and edges of the windshield where the wipers don't clean. It should take that off and it is fine enough that it won't affect the glass. You could also use a fine emory cloth as well.
DeTAILer, one who makes cars look like better than new. One area they address is clearing up all the glass so perfectly that it almost disappears. They'll tell you what to do and, more importantly, what NOT to do....by local dealer, do you mean a windshield installer?
"light hazing", sounds good! Noticeable on the pass. side...not so much on the drivers. I asked one detailer in town and he doesn't do it...I remembered I know a guy who's worked for a glass company (and a windshield installer) for 40 years! I'm thinking he's the one to ask! :thumbsup:I suggested, for those who can read (and if that's a problem, the library could well do you some good), that a PROFESSIONAL be consulted. The OP's issue is NOT simply a matter of difficult-to-remove bug guts or pine tar; he has "scuffs" to remove which could be anything from a light hazing to deeper scratches that have been substantially abraded. You don't know what he's up against. A pro does and, on that basis alone, should be consulted. Thanks for your interest.
