Is it possible? I don't know about your guys' cars but, on my drivers window it seems to have 3 or 4 vertical scratches.. I was going to tint the windows and not i'm thinking that the scratches will be easier to see with the tint..

It all depends on the depth of the scratches can you catch your nail in them, if you can not much can be done for them if not let me know man. Pics would also help:)

Superficial scratches are one thing, but if you can feel them, nothing I can think of can be done.

Anyone?

A really heavy dose of compounding would help round the edges down, but nothing can remove a scratch you can feel like that, short of a new window. I have a problem just like this with my driver side window.

Yeah its my drivers window as well.. The passenger side looks mint but my drives side is all kinds of ****ed up.

It looks like its gonna have to be a replacement.. I'll worry about that when im done with the motor and suspension mods.

Thanks everyone.



PS. I bought a rotory today :) 50 bucks and it goes up to 3000rpm. Siminez or some ****. dunno. But i'm going to be ordering pads soon.

I'll practice on my truck.

Look at cerium oxide polish offerings from Eastwood Co. and others online... it's worth a try before investing in new glass.
Thanks, i'll definitly check it out

Yeah I know what scratches you are talking about. Every Ford vehicle I have had or seen whether it was a Ford or Lincoln has the vertical scratches on the drivers window. I was told it was something to do with the way they make their doors, don't know if that is any truth or not. Some vehicles have deeper ones than others. Everytime I wax, I just go over my window and it sort of hides the scratches until I roll window down again. But on my navigator the scratches never blend in. Good luck with them

Mother's has it right. It's the ONLY thing that will really fix scratches on glass. I could never find any locally. I had to get some online but I wasn't using it for automotive glass but my sliding glass door. LOL

Also, good luck with that rotary. It's not something I would ever recommend to someone who hasn't used a DA, PC, etc for a bit to learn basics.

Completely false..

Not quite. 2005-2007 Mustangs had weatherstripping on the interior side of the window without felt on it. Once you added tint it would scratch the window because small pieces of dirt, etc getting trapped on the weatherstripping.

In 2008 they corrected this and made a new weatherstripping with felt on it. Never an issue with the glass being scratched, only the tint.

That's interesting. I'm not seeing how any quick wax would fill in any scratch that's capable of being felt with your finger nail.
