    I have found that Sysco Satin Shine is the only thing that has ever worked for me.

    I bought my 2005 Taco about a month ago and the glass on it looked awful. Water spots all over. I tried vinegar, steel wool and metal polish and nothing worked. I found this stuff at a NAPA store and it worked wonders. It's Duragloss Nu-Glass #755. Worked miracles. On the drivers side windows I had to use a drill with a pad on it and several coats, but all my glass looks like new now.

    Meguiar's Cleaner Wax followed by Meguiar's Quick Detailer is what I use! But, do not put the cleaner wax on the windshield...
    Rubbing Alcohol works as well!!

    What he said. I used an abrasive scratch pad that was not steel wool and it still scratched my front window. Im living with it until I get a rock or crack.
