wet sanding/polishing your windsheild?

My 93 Prelude's windsheild has a lot of nicks and scratches in it. One major set of them from where I was driving in a down pour and one of my wiper blades came off and the metal just scratched away at it. None of them however are very deep. Could I do somethign about this by wetsanding and polishing the windsheild? I see people do this with headlights and other plastic, just wondering if it woudl work for glass thanks!

I'm 99.9% sure this will not work on glass. Glass is not like paint or plastic it is a lot harder. You could probably sand it but that would be about it. I doubt you will find compound hard enough to polish the glass.

I don't believe you can wet sand a windshield. I'm pretty sure they are not only coated inside but coated on the outside too. The coating keeps the glass from being as lethal. It'll shatter (spider out) more and won't cut you as much.

Fist. Windshield. Fist meet windshield. Hello insurance.

If you feel it's not right, think again about the safety of driving with a scratched windshield. You insurance might replace it on that alone.

I've seen kits for polishing the windshield, and I was about to get it till I read "will not remove nicks". so yeah, it wouldn't really help you much.
