The only way that the Eastwood kit will work is if you can't get your fingernails into the scratches in the glass.

If you can catch your nails, the only way to fix the glass is to replace it.

If you do end up replacing the glass, make sure that you do it at a body shop and MAKE SURE that they repair the scratches that happen to the holding area for the glass BEFORE they replace it. I had a van that they didn't do that with and when I got another cracked windshield from a big rock, there was a bunch of rust where the exposed metal had encountered water. I had to flat bed the van to the body shop where they had to fix the windshield area and repaint it before the windshield company could come and reinstall the new glass a day or so later.

Good luck.;)

If your glasses have experienced many storms, showers and windy days and if they’ve become stiff or difficult to manipulate. Then, these are signs that the windows must be replaced. The cost of replacing windows depends on several factors, such as:-
  • Required window and glass size
  • Number of window glass
  • Condition of windows
  • Style and shape of windows

(I know its an old post but figured I'd help if others have scratches in their glass) :)

How bad are the scratches? If you can feel them it will be hard to get rid of them.
I used a CarPro CeriGlass kit and one of their Rayon pads on a DA and got rid of the scratches a tint shop put in my drivers side window. Didn't take long, but was messy to do.
