scratched windshield fix

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' at netrider.net.au started by ashrose, Dec 6, 2013.

  1. so after getting lots of advice on these pages from you guys i thought id give some.

    id been suffering a crappy heavily scratched windshield for quite awhile because someone decided to wash it with a scourer. it had scratches from tit to toe.
    i looked everywhere on how to fix it and the only info i could find told me to sand it back. thats not something i was willing to try.
    then i came across something called NOVUS plastic polish, its efin brilliant...
    i wont go into details on how to use it, you can find that yourself but IT WORKS and works well.
    within an hour i had all but a couple of deep scratches removed.
    i got mine from ebay for about $30 and it will last awhile.

    if you have scratched clear plastic (polycarbonate or whatever)
    try it , it takes no effort.

  2. depending on what type of plastic it is, you may need to coat it aswell.
    some clear plastics have a coating on them from factory to stop them yellowing. you polish them, it takes (some of) the coating off.

    i cant remember what to use, and this knowledge came from elsewhere when i was researching headlights... but it may well apply

  3. I have heard of Plexus before, although I have never tried it, good to hear the results first hand. For what it's worth, I have had very good results many times in the past polishing boat windscreens ( I think very similar material ) using Brasso.
