Windshield polish

When the car delivered, the windshield was unbelievable clear, looked great. After about a month, streaks were showing up, like acid rain streaks, all over the windshield when it rained. Hindered visibility and very annoying.
I believe the dealer put some sort of clearcoat polish over the windshield so for the first several weeks, it looked constantly clear and clean, like a Rain-X windshield all the time, nothing seemd to stick or dirty it. Well that 'coating' seemed to stain the glass.

Tried Zaino glass poilsh 2 days ago and WOW, that stuff works great ! It has a slight abrasive in it, but does not hurt the glass. It removed all the coating of whatever was on the glass from the dealer, in minutes.

When it is applied, feels like a fine sandpaper and as you polish, it gets smooth. Dries to a wax like dust and remove. No more streaks in the rain and in dry, looks like there is no windshield in front of me at all.

I know this sounds like an infomercial, but it is true. Highly recommend for anyone, this stuff is great !

After the Zaino glass polish, seal it with Zaino Z-CS.

All great products to use and here's one some folks forget is Duragloss 755 NU-Glass, works like a charm and under 8 bucks.

rainx and what they are talking about is totally different.

RainX is a "wax" for the window so the rain beads up. What they are talking about is a Polish for the window... To get all the road grime off of it.
