Maybe you just pulled your side glass to make the paint work you're doing easier, but now that it's out of the car, you're starting to think it might be worth it to get some new glass. Well, before you place your order, you might consider polishing your original pieces yourself. It's not difficult or costly to do, but it does take a lot of patience. So if you have more time than money, or if you would really like to keep your original date coded glass, this might be time well spent.
There are two parts to this process; one is to restore the glass' surface by polishing the entire piece of glass. This is what will give your window that like-new appearance. You could liken this part to buffing out a new paint job, except with the glass, you are using a much stronger abrasive on a much harder surface.
The second part is dealing with the scratches you initially wanted to fix. Most windows will have fine scratches that are caused by debris in the door channels and window fuzzies. This light scratching generally polishes out very nicely, but there are times when your window might have a blatantly obvious, nasty looking scratch. In this case, removal of the scratch might not be possible, and the glass will need replaced. But, what have you got to lose if you try?
