Are there any tips or tricks to get a really clean window?
polishing or buffing?
I have some stuff call "Nothing Better" and it works great.
The biggest key to keeping glass clean is once you've cleaned it really well, get into the habit of cleaning it weekly or twice a month. What kind of build up do you have on your windows? Is it greasy or more like hard water deposits?
this may sound pretty stupid- but here's what we do
when washing the truck's- we hose them down, spray the h*ll out of all the windows with windex- no cheap brand works as good-- wash the trucks- then wash the windows last, with the same brush we wash the trucks with- then hose them off. then we use our shammy thing, and it works great- takes bugs off our windows with more ease than anything else-
the other thing you can do , once its clean- is apply RAIN-X...it keeps stuff from getting really mashed on your window and makes cleaning a breeze!
yeah rain-x works great/forums/images/icons/smile.gif
Get you a quart spray bottle and mix the following - 12 oz of distilled water, 6 oz of rubbing alcohol, and 6 oz ammonia. Use it like you would Windex, but wipe with a sheet of newspaper instead of paper towels or a rag. Works wonders on even cigarette smoke film.
Im wondering about the small nicks. Not chips or cracks just the very small nicks
If they can be buffed out or not. So the class looks new.
hwat if you have liek paint on them..this kid that had my blazer befor me painted the thing in some cheapo black spray can paint. .and got it on the edges of the window..looks like quite the rush job!! what would you do for something liek that??
very fine steel wool and glass cleaner but don't rub to hard.
For chips and nicks you can get glass compund and a special buffer wheel for it. For paint, get some SHARP single edge razor blades (Ace Hardware's are awesome), and spray the window really good with water - scrape with the blade at around a 20-30 degree angle to the glass. If it's just spray paint, a rag soaked with carburetor cleaner will take it right off.
A razor blade and take it slow and carfully
windex and newspaper works great to clean them
