Scratched Glass

Are there any decent products around for scratched glass? I have some very faint scratches on my drivers window and im hoping something will be able to pollish them out

Cheers

R32 by any chance?

If it is, clean up the pads that the window slides against as they can trap grit.

Is it on the inside of the glass or the outside out of interest as I think they have pads on both sides unfortunately ?

There is a product from CarPro called CeriGlass which is designed to remove scratches in glass.

Jeweler's rouge - is what we used to use at Triplex Safety Glass for scratch repairs, there was a whole department dedicated to it. Dilute in water and work over the area with a felt pad.
Just make sure you work the whole area to blend in and not just work where the scratch is. A felt pad on a hobby tool will be ok and i cannot see why a polisher wouldn't work. Just keep the area wet with the diluted solution.

NB: If you can feel the scratch with your nail it is beyond repair but you may be able to dull it down.
