Default Scratched Windshield

My 2004 Accord has some fine scratches on the windshield. I think from
cleaning a major seagull dump that contained some abrasive particles. Any
suggestions for removing?

Thanks,
Greg

I had my windshield buffed by a glass installation place last year to remove
some heavy scratches (from a bit of grit that was trapped under the wiper
blade). It came out really good, and only cost $20.00 or so.

I think there's a product in the market that it's called : "Cerium Oxide"

It's a product that has to be applied with one of those buffing machines!...

It's actually a polisher, but you have to do it with the machine, not by
hand!..The price is around $ 13.00 usd per can (something like a pound)!...

You use it with a just a little water (like sand paper)!...

Check with your insurance company to see if they will pay for it
without a deductable.

Here in FL, the insurance company has paid for 2 different windshields
for me!

I assume there is a state law requiring them to replace it because it
is such an important safety issue for the other people who have to be
around the person driving the damaged windshield.

Auto glass coverage falls under your "Comprehensive" coverage (fire, wind
and theft). People with newer cars who have "Collision" coverage typically
choose the same $ deductible for Comp and they do Collision. Ergo if you
have $500 deductible for both Comp & Collision then you're going to wind
up paying for your own windshield(s).

State Farm is one company which -will- allow you to have separate
deductibles for Comp & Collision. I have $1000 deductible collision and
$50 deductible comprehensive. Over the last 20 years State Farm has bought
5 windshields for us w/no premium increase or penalty due to those claims.
The premium difference between $50 deductible Comp and $1000 deductible
Comp is proportinally small.

I have State Farm and my deductible never came into play. In fact I
never even saw a bill. I never even saw them replace the glass ...
the people came to the location of my car and repaired it on the
street or at work. I never signed any authorization to repair
it....just a phone call and that was it. State Farm did not inspect
the window.

I too was surprised at no deductible - so my only conclusion was that
the state had a public safety policy that assures people have good
visibility while driving.

The first windshield had a streak left from running it through a car
wash. The second was a nick in the glass from a stone on the highway.

Here is FL Statute

authorized insurer, providing comprehensive coverage or combined
additional coverage shall not be applicable to damage to the
