Window Polishing
What are you guys using to polish the haziness out of the Roban Windows? I have two windshields that are not very clear. I tried to use PlastX and it has not made much improvement.

Pick up a tube of Flitz. Works well on plastic to get minor marks out.

Yes I did remove the film on both sides. The windshield does not appear to have the film on either side.

Don't have a Roban.

However, we use Brillianize cleaner/polish and Novus #2 scratch remover. You will also need good microfiber polishing clothes for polishing.

So I have been polishing the windsheild for quite some time now and it appears that the issue is not on the surface of the plastic. I ordered another one from Motion RC and it is just as bad as the first.

Sound like you guys are making this polish way more work then it needs to be. First sand the scratches out with 220 or 320 grit sand paper. Sand lightly not hard. Once you think you got it, take 400 grit. Then 600 grit. If it is gone then go to 800 then 1000 or 1500 grit. If not go to 320 and work in the area. Then repeat to 600. If good then 800 then 1000 or 1500. Once you have done that. Wipe down and tack rag. Then mix up some good quality cear and flex. It will come out crystal clear. If you want to tint it just add a few drops of color.
For stain windshield sand with 400 until it clears up then go to 800 then 1000 or 1500 and do the same as before. I've done this for years and I done it on my head lights on the car. Looks brand new and it last longer then polishing kits. Key thing, good quality of clear ($$).
Hope this helps.

It's not scratched it is cloudy. It appears to be a defect during the manufacturing process.

Try Mcquires scratch X and a foam buffing pad in a drill. I got some scratches out and it polishes it. Harbor freight has the buffing kit.Maybe it might get the cloudyness out.

Stuka,
Cloudy, foggy or discolored.. you sand it out ( you may have to do both inside and out. I've done this both on my helicopter stuff and on my pickup plastic head lights lens that were cloudy.
Thanks
