Does anyone know about polishing a windshield? My windshield has scuff marks from the wiper blades. I have heard that auto detailers use steel wool. does anyone know if this can be a diy project?

I've heard the grade #0000 steel wool works on glass, but anything more coarse will scratch. I tried a little in the corner of one rear window, but didn't do much with very light pressure. It seemed to help remove the "water spots" and I didn't notice any damage from it. I haven't really had time to give a better test.

Yea, I trying to not replace the windshield. the truck was like that when I bought it but did not notice at first. Maybe I'll call an auto detailer and hope its cheaper than replacing it.

I don't know about the windshield kit but I detail cars for a living and some of the guys I work with will use steel wool (super fine grit) to remove bugs and water/overspray spots. Personally I just use a razor blade cause it works faster and with less effort for bugs and I dry the windows before the water can dry so I don't really get water spots
