Guys I hate to waste money but my windshield was hazed so bad in the sun I couldn't see where I was going. I tried the headlight restore kit and a plastic scratch kit on corners of the windshield that only made it worse. I got to pondering on what a propane torch would do so I tried it. I cleaned the windshield with windex wipes and stated a sweep back and forth with the torch (like I was painting) and I am amazed on how clear it ended up. I did try some of the deep scratches but bubbled the area around it so be careful if you try this. I had mine in the direct sun light so I could see the haze and it worked great. I wished I would have taken a before and after picture. Try it!

I wonder if a hot air heat gun or plastic welder might work? I have a rear window that is hazed, have used the plastic welder to tepair cracked snowmobile wind screens but the repair area is frosty.

Interesting... Might have to try that on my polycarbonate WS when it gets bad.
