moon roof restoration (OE sunroof glass)


so I have a couple of these for my Trekker . Both are ok , but have scratches on the glass ... So I decided to try "fix" the worst one ..

This one was from a unit I parted a few years back .. It was rolled , as you can see the deep scratches on the glass .

so first .. I put some tape on the back side , so I would know ware I'm working

then I brought out the DA and started to sand it with 220

I spent a few more hours sanding .. and polishing .. 6 hours total so far

Click the image to open in full size.

reflection is awesome , but there are still some haze spots .. captured pretty good on the camera , but you really have to "look" to see them .. and I think on top of the roof , no one would ever notice

overall , I'm pretty happy .. no more scratches , which were visable from far with the roof open , and also visable from looking inside up at the roof .. you no longer can see them , and the minimal haze , is not visable either

maybe a REALLY gritty compound, i had one i never used because it would scratch as much as it would buff.. i could feel the grit in it, one of the 3M compounds so any paint store should have it, that might "cut" a little more than the regular compound.. im very interested in trying this now! even if it's hazy it's better than the giant scratch
