    Default Glass scratches

    Hey guys, anyone have any clues about how to remove scratches from the car window? I parked too close to a bush over night and have some quite noticable marks on my drivers rear tinted window.

    A very good method is to use jewellers rouge you can get it in powder form that you mix with water to make a paste or comes ready mixed!

    It is intentionally used for polishing fine metals but it has been found to be perfect for doing the same to glass!

    I use it to finish the glass on some high end watches i deal in!

    You could try a local jewellers to see if they can give you a sample so you can try before you buy!

    Do a Google to check out some results.

    Posted a quick link below for your perusal.
