how to remove scratches from windows?
 
for some reason i got these on both side windows, and on the windshield that looks like from wipers, but not sure, they are all over the place.
i really dont want to replace the windows as i see fine trough them, but just something thats there thats bothering me.

anyone got any ideas?

Eastwood has a glass polishing product. I've not used it, but other have reported that it works to restore old car windows and windshields.

There are attachments and pads for the PC polisher specifically for the windshield. I beleive Autoglym makes some polishes for glass.
Try the Autogeek.net, Bettercarcare.com and Autopiacarcare.com sites for the polishes.

thx, ill look into it. it doesnt really bother me during the day, but at nite when driving under city lights u can clearly see them.. looks like if there were some rocks or soethign stuck under the whipers and scratched accross the whole windshield, and i dont even wanna know how both the windows, parringer and driver side, are scratched.

I can tell you how that probably happened. The previous owner must have driven the car through one of those older tunnel car washes that had the plastic brushes. Those disappeared for the most part about 5 or 6 years ago and were replaced with touchless or cloth/canvas brushes.
I'm guessing those scratches were put on when the car was only a year old and have been there ever since. Replacing a windshield can be done for as little as $300 depending on your area by Safelite. Just make sure your dashboard is covered with a cover. I had a bad experience recently with that.

drivers or passengers wearing diamonds = scratched door glass

just something to consider, because it will come back if you give the same folks a ride later :p
