can scratches from a pop can on a windshield be buffed out, or does it have to be replaced.?

I used a soda can as a windshield scraper in a hurry and it left streaks across the windshield. Can that be buffed out?

    that was really dumb of you. are you not from the north?

    anyways it depends on how bad the scratches are. there is a compound that is a glass filler/buffer that you can buy at the auto parts store. you may have to look around cause i have only seen it once. my friend used it on some scrathes caused by dirt on his driver side window and it worked well. i dont know what its called but im sure if you go in and ask for it they will know what you are talking about.

    next time get a real window scraper or turn your defroster on well before yoiu try and drive.

    a chum had a agency in sharpening scratches out of the tubes of television's -- He used a answer and a device resembling an perspective grinder which properly floor away the scratches and left the exterior with a demanding outer pores and skin as is favourite with glass This became many years in the past so i do not understand if this remains performed as we communicate or the fee of such an challenge All you ought to do is make enquiries, get costs, then do the sums

    there are glass and window filler products out there that will make it look as if the scratch wasn't even there. you would have to go to a store and ask if they have something like that or try on line looking first to figure out if there is a place near you where you can get some, it should be pretty cheap

    I have never heard of a glass filler. But you can try the filler for CD's. Go to your local Best Buy or any computer dealership and see if it works. If not then it will have to be replaced. Good Luck
