Scratches in windows. Any experience?

I have some light horizontal scratches in my side windows from the previous owner using a metal snow scraper.

I've been looking at glass polish kits online that use a drill but it seems like half of the reviews say they work great and the other half say they don't work at all.

Has anyone ever fixed light scratches in their windows? What product do you recommend?

Polishing glass is a long process (glass is a lot harder than paint remember) and you can end up doing more damage than good.

I use a rotary with a Rayon glass pad and some cerium oxide. The key is keeping the glass cool and avoiding heat build up or you will damage the glass.

I also use CarPro CeriGlass from time to time, they stock a kit which might be of use to you.
