You made the same mistake that 99% of people who build a '41 Willys make. That raised lip around the windshield represents the black rubber gasket around the glass. It is not supposed to be clear.

Great tip on the windshield, I've seen that on other models and never painted it. Now I know

What should I use to polish the clear out? Wax?

You need some real fine grit sandpaper. I think the kits start at around 3000 grit and get progressively finer to 12000 grit. Then take some Novus #2 and rub it out. Some people use Meguiers Scratch X instead of Novus. When it's all SHINY :) :) :) , finish it off with a nice coat of The Treatment Model Car Wax.
