    Where can one obtain a glass polish, and can one use a DA for this and if so, what cutting pad? Perhaps the red one?

    Hello! I just love Meg products here in Australia. Use them all the time

    Tried this method as outlined in this thread. WOW! And I mean WOW! My auto glass looks superb. Thank you for posting this information. I used a felt wheel with a thin liqiud "slurry" of optical grade cerium oxide and distilled water. Mixed it very watery and as it dried out used spray bottle with distilled water to re lube. This stuff is "magic".

    Used very slow speed and light pressure and the glass is crystal clear removing 25 years of harsh environment and wiper rash. I could see the difference and the "sheeting" of water film on the glass took on an entirely different conduct after the polishing process. The glass has a gloss of new glass and Im flabergasted. Thankyou for your guide. It worked for me exceptionally well.

    Re: Glass Polishing by Machine - Defect Correction

    I did my windshield over the weekend - amazing results! Had tracks that were in, not on, the glass. You couldn't feel them with your fingernail, but you could see them when driving into the sun or oncoming headlights.

    I used a slurry of cerium oxide and tap water (about a 1-3 mixture), and applied with a Porter-Cable random orbital. I decided to try the pad that came with the PC, since I had no plans to use it for anything else. Worked in the up-down, side-to-side pattern you'd use when polishing paint. Spent about 90 minutes doing the entire windshield.

    I must say, I am impressed with the results.

    The only downside is the cerium oxide splatters a lot, so a thorough and careful wash is required afterwards.

    Re: Glass Polishing by Machine - Defect Correction

    Awesome...but there are still some open questions. Can this be done with a DA and Ultimate Compound? Isn't newer glass coated, aren't the fine scratches just in the coatings, and can we not easily ruin such coatings?

    BTW, as usual, I've found a little QD/QW works wonders, but not for heavy wiper scratches.

    I tried UC and it didn't do a thing. That's not to say it might work on some wiper tracks - worth a shot. Mine were deep enough that it didn't though. I would like to know what others think about ruining a coating with cerium oxide.
