Re: Is it possible to remove a windshield scratch? (ckgs)

If you can feel it or pick it with your finger nail its too deep..But if you cant you can bring it to a glass shop and see if they use Aegis scratch removal system and they can usually do it for you for less then 50.00 bucks.If its in the drivers vision they might not this process does causes some distortions,you can really noticed it at nite time....

Re: Is it possible to remove a windshield scratch? (vce123)

I recently went to visit Safelite Autoglass where they did a demonstration of how to repair chips in windshields. It was pretty impressive, so slight sctratches and even chips thaty you can feel to the touch are repairable. If I remember correctly if you can cover it with a dime it can be repaired depending on where the chip occured. It's always better to replace if your insurance covers it, but if not this is an alternative.

Thats correct about the broken w\s and they even repair them up up to 6 inches or what a dollar bill can cover...They use glass medic equipment..and these is for chips and breaks only...and it will still show initial point of impact...It wont disappear completely,its a structual repair,not cosmetic...a scratch is a different type of system that involved polishing and using polishing compounds..You can not use a repair to remove a scratch...The fingernail technique is true with the break....
