Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Just bought a '97 Taurus. Must have lived on a dirt road as the driver window and windshield were scratched. Did the driver window first, as the scratches were so bad it was a safety hazard. The results were amazing. The glass looks new. When completed the windshield was nearly perfect with exception of the deepest scratches from tip of the wiper blades. Follow the directions and take your time and you will get great results. Use a sponge to keep the surface wet. One suggestion: make sure to tape off the bottom of the door windows so the compound doesn't run into the doors. The compound will splatter. In closing, I saved hundreds of dollars in glass replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a dream! I have a 2001 BMW 530i that I purchased with water spots on the windows, assuming they would clean off. They wouldn't. The only thing that would remove it was very laborious rubbing with steel wool. A detailer told me it was hard water spotting, but it was so bad and ammonia would not cut it. The windows didn't feel "slippery" and felt kind of rough. I was considering replacing all the glass. I tried the polishing kit last night with a standard rotary buffer set on low speed. It did an amazing job. I buffed the windows clean in under a couple hours including the sunroof. I have to go back to touch up a few spots. For removal of hard water spots that seem permanent I highly recommend this product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as advertised I purchased a used truck from a New Mexico rancher who did not believe in washing it (5 years worth). Needless to say the side window haze that desert dwellers are familiar with was so bad you could not see through them when the sun was low. A local glass shop said replacement was the only option. I took a chance on the Pro Glass Polishing Kit and am glad I did. The windows are showroom clear. I am very impressed with the outcome; no swirl marks or waviness, just clear glass. Just use good polishing techniques and keep the paste/slurry moist; don't try to do the whole window at once. Expect to make a mess and to expend some energy. Each side window took about 1 1/2 hours and I used about 1/4 of the compound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will not work for sand-pitted glass I bought a used '96 Audi A4 with 159K miles that had significant windshield sand pitting from extended highway driving in some sandy state somewhere. I used a variable-speed polisher at the recommended 1500rpm on one 4" diameter spot for 30 minutes and I couldn't remove even the smallest sand pits. Since the polishing compound is red, I suspect that the polish that comes with the kit is Iron(III), or ferric oxide, also known as jeweler's rouge, rather than the more commonly used cerium oxide which is white. Cerium oxide cuts quite a bit faster, but it is said that iron(III) oxide will give a superior finish. Anyway, if you have any kind of sand pitting, forget the sanding and polishing and get a new windshield.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product does the job. Recently purchased this product to remove some small scratches on my windshield. Nothing to deep, but still noticeable when driving. After about 3 hours of polishing I was able to see a significant difference. The scratches were about 90% gone, which was enough for me to not want to purchase another windshield. It gets VERY messy too. Had to give my car a deep cleaning afterwards. Overall I would recommend this product if you have scratches that aren't very deep and are on a budget that prevents you from getting another windshield. Be prepared to put in a lot of work to get your windshield close to perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved..Thank You! I never got around to cleaning off the seagull poop from our 2010 Honda Pilot after a vacation at the beach. It was two obnoxious droppings, one being in the line of sight and too much for the windshield wiper fluid to handle. My wife took things into her own hands and "scrub padded" the windshield with some windex. This left a 4 inch scratch/abrasion mark that was 10x worse than the poop. After trying regular glass cleaners..nothing worked. I checked the local auto parts store for some glass polish of sorts, but no luck. I called window chip professionals and they said they cant do anything about scratches. I called a windshield place, they suggested a new windshield for approximatly $800. Then odered this product, used as directed with a cordless drill and 20 minutes of careful polishing..Whaalaa..perfect shiny clear glass!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product. I work in a commercial optical shop, so there was no surprises when I opened the box. Pretty much the same product I use on a daily basis. But, I did not want to spend the time gathering the supplies together, so I just bought a kit. What I was surprised about was how well it worked. Pleased with the outcome on my Mercedes. I knew it would be a messy job, so I prepared for that. The glass I worked on was frosted type fine scratches from probably dirty wipers done by the previous owner. Good results, and I have plenty left over if I need to tackle another project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectation It seems like this product was intended for windshields. However, I used this product on Ford Carlite tempered side glass on my Shelby Mustang's passenger door. There were numerous scratches present from the dealer. Though they could not be felt with my fingernail, they were long and numerous, looked bad, and very visible when low sun came in through the window. The batteries in my drill are poor, so I used the felt pad provided on my dual action Mequiars car polisher on the lowest speed setting. I made sure to keep the product on the felt pad moist with a spray bottle of water on hand. Tempered glass is apparently harder than windshield glass so it took quite a bit of time. The scratches are gone, no distortion. Great product.

Is this product really going to work on a light scratch caused by wiper blade?  I have been told at the auto glass shop that these kind of scratches can't be buffed out with any compound.

yes this will remove light/mild scratches out of your windshield.

I see that this product is designed to work on laminated glass windshields. However, does it work safely on tempered glass windows such as the side windows of a car?
