My 2002 had a really pitted, scratched windshield and clouded turn signal lenses. Used "Mother's" Headlight Cleaner kit, which is a blue sponge ball mounted on a mandrel and a bottle of very fine rubbing compound. Big difference in the transparency of the turn signal lenses, but the change in the windshield was PHENOMENAL! I can see! Highly recommended!

You should probably use some kind of a sealer on that windshield now that you've abraded the original finish (along with the hazing) off of it. Those headlight polishing kits usually advise you to do that, so that same advise would hold true for your windshield as well.

Thanks, Tim!

And having used what was left of the bottle of glaze (sealer), I went looking for more. None to be found in 'Cycle Gear', 'Auto Zone', 'Pep Boys', but ChiTown H-D had a shelf full! Took off my "Will Race Harley's For Titles" tee shirt before I entered the store! Just common sense self preservation kicking in!
