windscreen scrathes, no obvious cause
After six years, my Civic windscreen is a mass of fine scrathes, which are only visible in the rain or when the screen is cold. I've only used a rubber squeege to get the ice off, so it's not been scrathed by anything hard. I'd decided that the glass was coated in some way and it was this coating that was being scratched. (How can rubber scratch glass !!). Who knows, only Honda.
There are far too many light scratches to consider jewellers rouge or any polishing compound involving drill attachments.
I get temporary relief by polishing the windscreen with a rain repelant, but this is easily removed by screen wash, so only provides a very temporary solution. Currently I grin (or not) and bear it.
