Winter sun hitting it at a lower angle probably showing up more. I picked up four new customers on  a street iv been cleaning for some time all walk ups, I think the low angle winter sun must have influenced their decision. Obviously if you’ve noticed this problem over a long period of time this won’t be the issue.

Is it proper single owned lead with single pieces of glass in every piece of lead? How many times have you cleaned it? It is possible that dirty water is still leeching out.

No it’s a single pane of glass with lead strips on top, probably cleaned them about 10 times wfp

Sounds like the lead has run onto the glass and stained it. Try rubbing neat Virosol on the glass with a cloth and then WFP it off. It's worked for me in the past.

Bar keepers friend is the weapon of choice for lead stains, mix it up into a paste and scrub with a magic sponge or even a cloth - try not to get too much on the lead as you may take the oxidised layer off, making it shiny (it will leech again then!). Jobs a gud-un and the glass will be like new again!!!
