Having a few issues with glass

I baught myself a a new to me car and im having issus with the glass both inside and out.

Outside the glass is very greasy and both the sindscreen and rear screen have randon scratches, possiball from cat. Ive tried all the usual suspects to get the greace off and have gone as far as white spirit but yet it remains.

Ive just had a quick go of the rear screen with some sonax glass polish via rotary and a shinemate polishing pad but it seamed to dry very quickly and wiped off very streaky! I was useing speed 2 about 1800 rpm, i was hoping to remove a few of the random scratches.

Inside im looking for some kind of coating as im a vaper and my screen gets a film on every otherday, its a nightmare to clean off!

Hey

Try Dooka VRG Glass Cleaner which can be bought direct from Dooka himself or in sample size from CleanYourRide.

As for the grease. Have you tried tardis, or IPA?

Try IPA to get rid of the grease. Glass is very hard to scratch so doubt it was a cat, more likely grit caught in the wipers, bird bombs can do a lot of damage to glass too. Getting the scratches out is equally difficult and you will need a dedicated polish containing cerium oxide and a specialised rayon glass polishing pad. The pads are ultra thin to give as much cutting action as possible so are not recommended for inside glass due to the curvature which prevents the pad from fully contacting the surface. Polishing glass generates lots of heat, which is why your polish dried out so quickly, so you will need to lubricate with lots of water.

1800rpm for the glass polish seems very high. Sonax suggest about 1000rpm http://www.sonax.com/content/view/full/19381. You would really need a dedicted glass polishing pad rather than a paint pad to remove any defects from paint. Not tried the Sonax but have used the CarPro version and they can dry out quite quickly. Lower your speed and have a small spray of water ready to keep the product working

What LoweJackson says.

I've never used one but these get mentioned a lot.

White spirit won't help as that leaves a greasy residue.

For properly polishing glass (i.e to remove scratches) you will need a rayon pad and cerium oxide polish (eg ceriglass by CarPro). Most "glass polishes" sold are in fact only cleaners with abrasives that clean rather than remove scratches.

Polishing out glass scratches is messy and time consuming, it can be done but watch out for heat build up.
