Windscreen wiper scratches.

Postby Mike Attew » Sun Apr 07, 2019 1:05 pm

Is there a way to polish out a windscreen wiper arc scratch from a screen? I guess in the past the end of the wiper arm did a sweep.

I believe Autoglass or similar companies can polish out scratches rather than replace the screen. Windscreen cover insurance sometimes covers scratch removal.

I have polished many screens. It is no problem and you can use ordinary metal or paint materials.
If the scratches are deep it will take ages though.........Glass is hard.

Jeweller's Rouge is a very effective compound for removing scratches in glass.
