cleaning front windshield
 
i cant seem too get the spots off my windshield i dunno if its dust. i tried cleaning it off with microfibre cloth and windex front and inside doesnt seem too come off.

you can barely see it on the camera. but i will get some tomorrow

tried the bug/tar removal spray? Spray it and leave it for a while before you wipe it off??

I think you'd be okay with a little big of scrubbing action during car wash.

I can't see it in the picture, but I would recommend claying it and maybe a glass polish if clay doesn't do it. Glass polish gets my glass squeaky clean every time.

Can it be rock chips?
Can you take it off by scratching it off?

911fanatic 07-13-2010 08:52 PM

If its not rock chips, do as blacK20 suggested. Clay and follow up with DG Glass Polish.

seekerbeta 07-14-2010 06:55 PM

yeah, Claying will really help with the stuff. i did it on my car.. OMG it looked almost brand new.

hate to thread jack, but it's has relevance to this thread; what if the windshield does have slight scratches all over. Is there any compound that can help fill it, or is there a process I can do to help increase visibility, versus replacing the entire thing?

figure.09 07-21-2010 11:27 PM

yeah claying didnt work =(

littledog 07-22-2010 05:29 AM

It looks like tiny rock chips. Do you drive on the highway a lot?

911fanatic 07-22-2010 06:05 AM

Can you catch your fingernail in them? If claying didn't work, polishing with a light polish via white or green pad may do it.

There are products that will allow you to minimalize the scratches in the windshield but its a tedious process and if you get the glass too hot it could actually distort your view. Just live with it or replace it.

yea i cant fingernail them in its just there. where can i buy the polish?
and some of them are rock chip marks =(

911fanatic 07-22-2010 04:50 PM

Do you have a polisher? If not, come by my shop and I'll go over the windshield for you.

figure.09 07-22-2010 05:51 PM

911fanatic 07-23-2010 05:49 AM

seekerbeta 07-24-2010 11:03 AM

yeah its almost time for me to reload at kens place, im almost out of instant detailer, and im just waiting for his PC Kits to go back on sale.

dhari 08-17-2010 02:21 PM

im not sure if i read this here or on some other forum, but can u use steel wool and some lubrication to get rid of the junk on the windshield?

911fanatic 08-17-2010 08:14 PM

Yes, 0000 steel wool and soapy water should be fine. 0000 is very fine and won't scratch the glass. DO NOT use it on mirrors.

dhari 08-18-2010 11:35 AM

i doubt i can use the same steel wool that my mom uses to scrub pots and pans? lol
