    What is this on my windshield?

    I cleaned the glass inside and out with IPA and then with glass cleaner. It looks great except when a strong light comes from the front these small chip-like spots show up all over the surface. Are they actual chips? How can I get rid of them? Thanks

    Looks like to me, natural wear and tear on the glass, much like road rash on a bumper. There are always tiny little hard object being kicked up by the vehicle in the front, even though you cannot see them. It eventually wears away at everything hitting it at 70 mph. If that is in fact, road rash of the windshield, you are out of luck. There is nothing that I know, that you can do about it. A new windshield would do the trick.

    You could try claying the outside, but yeah, small nicks build up too.

    If it is pitting you can feel it with your finger tip. No real solution other than replacement.

    It is hard to tell for sure with that one picture if it is normal pitting. Another picture would help.
