I read a trick to make windows seem a lil crisper/cleaner but its escaped me now.  I bought a model off ebay, windows are a lil foggy for me.  It came without the wrap on box, not like a pic showed :huh:

If the windows are scratched or foggy I usually sand them down with a polishing pad set. Then I dip them into Pleadge with future and let it dry. I do this step to every window I use any ways but it will help bring back a nice clear glass look.

As Joe said in above post the Novus works very good and have used it several times. One word of caution however. Clear window plastic can be very brittle so watch how much pressure you apply and keep the window on a hard flat surface as you use the polish.  Good luck.

Me guitars scratch x compound works great for polishing fine scratches.

If you have old kit glass that has turned yellow over time I discovered by accident that if you put it in 90% alcohol it clears it right up! Originally I put glass from an old Valiant in there to get some paint off it. Was pleased when it came out like new.

+1 for Novus here. And Pledge with Future or whatever you guys call it these days. I still have a bottle of Klear, which is what it was over here...
