Windshield tidbit

Over the years one of my hobbies has been that of detailing, definitely not at a professional level but to the best of my ability.
I have tried many and various products over the years, have seen some fantastic products and also some lousy products.

The windshield was never one I got into 100 %. I always did what most of you did.

I came across this video on youtube and it blew me away. It made so much sense

Jerry,

Well, the video was from the head cam of top fuel dragster Phil Read, not that it wasn't interesting but nary a word about windshields. Think you mighta gotten cross linked there but will be interested to see what you came across.

Really dislike the film caused by off-gassing. Usually use newspaper or the glass cleaner Touch of Purple (which we bought at the Hershey RV show) to clean on the inside but the out-gas film does seem to return quickly.

We too like to keep our car and truck clean (as well as the Sunline). Presently we're using an all-in-one called Klasse, especially for the F-150 which spends its time outdoors. Not a wax but an acrylic, Klasse gives the finish a shine without looking like a bottle of vegetable oil was spilled on car. We've been impressed with how long it lasts. We'd be interested in hearing what you and others have used which you like.

Interesting, never thought about using 0000 steel wool for windows. (Also watched the "speed version" of that video and there he did clean the window of a Class A.)

Glass is much harder than steel so there is no reason it would scratch it unless there was dirt in the steel wool.

Believe it or not I'm actually doing mine this week. Lowes was sold out of 0000. They had 000 but I kind of want to do it the way it was recommended. Failing that I'll head to Home Depot.
We just got back from 3 days of camping in Algonquin Park. One night was freezing and thank goodness we had our furnace turned on. Last trip for the year
