Plastic scratches on Vauxhall screen..

Afternoon all.

A work mate has just got a 14 plate Astra SRi and some how managed to get scratches on the screen after removing water with some sort of window hydro blade or similar..!!

He tells me that the scratches feel like plastic and doesn't think the glass is damaged. He's asked me to assist in the removal of said marks.

I'm thinking of cutting compound on a micro fibre pad followed by Auto Glym glass polish, or claying followed by glass polish. Thoughts, ideas and suggestions welcome as always, cheers.

I would be inclined to clay the screen and then use the glass polish and see if something is on top of the glass
