Frosts and Machine Mart do a kit specifically for getting rid of such scratches, works well to, about 15 IIRC

I had an arc shaped scratch from one of the wipers for most of the sweep and it got rid of the damage, it did take several goes though, its pretty gentle, and there is loads of stuff left over give the rest of the screen a freshen up.

Oh the 145's windscreen could use a little repair, there's a few scratches and a small crack passenger side.

Will look for something similar here.

Well I always use a electric buffer for this purpose and I think its the best way to to get rid off those scratches. I always trust on Mother's products for cleaning the cars and I think they are the best brand.. but here guys you have shared good suggestion.
