Question '02 rear window - repair kit ? Detailing suggestions

I have a spot on the on the side of vinyl window that's rough and may have a few pin holes in one area May have been the cable with screw that had worked it's way off that
rubbed on top when closed didn't see it before buying - wondering if the indy shop exacerbated this when working on it ?

I was going to find a product to polish ? But I'd like to put something on the area to keep any possible water entry .

saw a product called Cabrio Doc - It's from Germany - any other ideas ?

any other detailing tips & products are very welcome

Cleaning and polishing the plastic window, Novus 1, 2 and 3. From grit to polish, three steps and then just maintain with polish. Sold as a kit.

Garage
The Novus products are fabulous, not magic, but pretty darn close.
I use them on the Boxster's rear window and headlights. I even polished out a pretty ugly scratch on my centre windscreen.

I used UV6800

I had a 1/2" crack at the top center of the clear plastic window a couple of years ago that was allowing water to enter. I thought that I would try this before having a new window sewn in or replacing the entire top. It is not invisible, but it is still waterproof and has not yellowed.
