    Default Polished the windscreen

    Well this morning I decided I was fed up with the marks left by the wiper blades so I climbed into the screen, clayed it first then using the PC and Einszett Glass Polish, applied a small amount to a 4" polishing pad (white) spread on speed 1 then up to speed 5 after a couple of passes that was that job done.........ran over it with AG Glass Polish on a 4" finishing pad (Blue) on speed 3 just to finish it off and hey presto no more marks........bootifull

    Bryan

    PS I went round the rest of the glass with the PC just for good measure

    Yeah Paul in the meantime all you need do is apply some wax every now and again and that'll be that

    I'll probably bring the PC and the glass polish with me on the trip to Germany so if anyone has the same marks (most cars do) and fancies trying it out we'll be ready to go

    Good news Bryan, when I had cleaned the car last week I thought it would be a good idea to clean the glass (out side) so I got some megs pads and some AG Glass Polish to do the job, once I tried to take it off it had just about froze.

    Lets just say the hassle trying to get it off was not nice.....

    I think I have learned from my mistake....

    Cool, although a quick wipe with a meths soaked cloth on the glass and blades,does the same job,and there's no sweat involved.

    Mind since going over to the flat blades,blade streak has become a thing of the past....

    It's not streaking........my wipers don't do that eh ........no it's actual marks in the glass........now gone though

    And there's no sweat involved it's a very simple and quick job........it takes longer to get the PC set up

    I think I'll just wait till it gets a wee bit warmer before using the glass polish...lol

    I wsh I had been able to make that day you had planned Bryan last year, it would have been good to meet you and get some tips.

    Just a pity I couldnt get a baby sitter....weans.
