  • Good abrasive glass cleaner?

    The back window in the hatch I put on the Firebird has something on it. I dunno what it is, clear paint overspray, some kind of chemical, acid, just don't know. It's like it is dirty, kinda fogged up looking. I tried Windex, it just laughed at it. Tried scraping with a razor blade scraper, I could get just a little residue, but it still looks foggy in places, and it doesn't feel smooth like glass should, you can feel it's got something there, but what ,I don't know. It's not on the whole glass, but about the rear third extending to the edge. Wondering what might be good to try, Comet, Bon Ami, SOS pad? Maybe a scotchbrite pad on my variable speed drill? All wet, of course. I don't want to scratch it, but clean it good.

    Any ideas?

      Been hard to find the good cleaners lately. Every time we go to the stores, most of the cleaner aisle is empty....

        I’ve had some luck with Autosol and 0000 steel wool. They also have glass polishing kits like this from Eastwood, although you can probably find cheaper kits at glass stores or places like that.

          When the body shop coated my entire passenger side window with clear coat over spray, I used 0000 steel wool wet with either glass cleaner or carb cleaner to get it off. I honestly dont remember which one I used. I tried a couple of different combos before I found something that worked.

            Even 0000 with dish washing liquid can do wonders.

              Couldn't find any steel wool last night of any kind, did find a can of AJAX, going to give that a shot.
