OEM windshield restoration
I bought my '99 LT with 63k on it and it had a much taller BMW touring shield already installed. It's great for the winter and the interstate but, living in the north part of South Carolina, I wanted a much shorter shield for all the twisties...to be able to look over it.
Thus my very cheap purchase ($36 + shipping) of an original '00 LT shield on eBay from a salvage. WAY better on height for me...however, though the eBay seller showed the major scratch on the side of the shield, they did not show the numerous light scratches on the main part...what you'd look THROUGH while in the up position. He also packed it with paper instead of cloth...so the scratching could've come from that (from what I understand on the polycarbonate shields)
1. Any restoration options out there like CeeBailey's acrylic shield restoration service? (but for the PC shields)
2. I've just read today that you're not supposed to use Windex on these PC shields. I've never heard that anywhere else. What's the harm? What else should be used?
