    Is there any way to fix scrathes in glass (store front) windows? A customer of mine has a few windows with scratches (not deep but not shallow either). He asked me how to fix it and i told him i'd look into it. Thanx in advance for all the help.

    you would start with a coarse grit and progress to a fine grit. If claims of a magic way to move the glass molecules around to fill in the scratch sound unbelievable--they just might be. Just polish the glass two three times it would go away.

    000 wire wool with silvo the silver version of brasso is what I have used on minor scratches caused by rose bush thorns

    However, it depends on the glass, because I had a similar problem and this trick didn't help me.
  7. Apply polishing or jeweler's rouge to a lambs wool buffing pad. You can either buff the scratch by hand using a circular motion or with an electric buffer on medium speed.

    I have always wondered the same thing but never got around to finding an answer. I have a small scratch on a front window at my home and tried silver brasso and unless you knew the scratch was there before you would never know it now. While it is not completely gone it is very minute and almost invisible to the naked eye.
  10. My advice stay well clear, i used to woork in the motor trade and we had a kit for taking scratches out of glas consisting of an abrasive paste specialised ssanding disks and a eletric polisher, takes hours and doesn't always work
