windshield problems

Had a co-worker on Saturday decide to put some tire tags on my windshield. Not that big of a deal, but it sat out in the sun and the glue came off on the windows. I took what i thought was a new soft sponge and some soap and rinsed it off. Everything came off, and then drove down the road and realized it scratched the window up pretty good. Evidently the sponge had some sand, metal flakes, or some unknown object in it to scratch it the way it did. Its nothing that you can really feel, but its light scratches all over the front and drivers window. Im already replacing the side window for $85 installed(couldnt buff out from what im told), but was wondering if anyone had any miracle ideas on how to remove the scuffs. Ohh, and the next day at work, his whole truck was covered in tags. Payback.

Razor blades work really well for getting glue off windows, but its a little late for that. Try calling a glass shop and see what they can do.

Ive called every glass shop in San antonio, and all have said im S.O.L. Only option they gave was replacing it. Not really an option i want, ill deal with it before replacing it right now.Id rather use that money for mods.

Ive seen this stuff on TV (yes i know lame!) but its for glasses (eye glasses) that fills in scratches on them maybe it would work for your windshield, don't know how much it came with or how much it cost just hit me when i heard scratches on glass .

no im pretty sure its free, id call your insurance and ask them. The only thing is i dont know if they will want to do it because its scratched, so ud have to crack it. My buddy tapped his passenger side of the windshield with a ball peen hammer and they replaced it. Just make sure u find out from your insurance company first lol

Nice way to get what you want lol just dont ask if they replace scratches cause if they say no and you come back and say its cracked they will think you cracked it.
