    I purchased a used Snug Top canopy and noticed the tinted windows have very light scratches...only noticeable with direct sunlight. Is there a way to get rid of them, or make them less noticeable? The scratches appear to be like a scotch brite pad or something similar was used on the widows in a couple spots.

    You can polish the glass with a compound that is made specifically for polishing glass, but it is a pain in the ass, and will take you quite some time. You will also need a buffer that runs at about 800-1000 rpm. In most instances, you want to remove the glass to get an even polish, but it is not always necessary.

    I cant think of the name of the compound that is used, but if i remember, I'll post it up.
