The windshield on my car is ugly. I would describe it as being 'hazed'. Lots of little tiny nicks in it. If the sun hits it it's like having a sheet thrown over the car, I can't see out. I'm wondering if I can do something to help clear this up, or do I need to buy a new windshield?

: The only thing to try other than a new windshield is to buff it out. Eastwood Company, which carries a lot of restoration products has a powder that you mix into a slurry and use a buffer tobuff it out. I have the same problem with mine. I have done it once and it helpad a little bit. I am going to do it again. They also sell a buffing attacment that I used with a power drill. This was several years ago that I bought this from them. Its worth a try. Somewhere I have heard of people using Bon Ami cleanser. Check the archives about that one.
