Hi Roberta.....

Is this a possible solution for you?

https://www.caswellcanada.ca/glass-polishing-kit.html

The company is close to where my business is...... I'll be dropping in on them next week to get some black oxide from them to redo my old pellet gun.

Cheers, Scott

PS, I like David Martins way of thinking as well!

There is always the option of following a mud bogger or a farmer fresh out of a field. Construction job sites are good for folks with tires full of mud with stones in it.

Scott, I've considered this, though would use a slightly different
product that has slightly more cutting power before going to the
cerium, which is so fine I'm not sure it would remove the chipping
glaze. I even have a water grinder that I've used on enameled bath
tubs in homes where we purchased them, and the prior resident had used
chemicals that roughened the tubs so badly they were pretty
uncleanable. It's a rather heavy tool for me and I worry about
distortion when you do this sort of thing... as I read that few folks
manage to get the job done in such a way that they feel it was an
improvement.
Now you are allowed to guffaw at this, but somehow I'm
visualizing myself stretched out over the top of the cab, reaching
down with that heavy tool and trying to slide it real smoothly across
the curve of the windshield in arcs, a totally impractical image....
but you know, a ladder doesn't get you up into position any better, as
you'd be some distance out from the surface you intend to grind that
way too. I hate to think of a scaffold... but that might actually be
the best solution.
I may seriously undertake this, though, with your encouragement.

Roberta

ok.... I'll be sensible :-\ , we don't want bad dreams! How about ...
two six foot aluminum step ladders with a 2x12 slung between them
over top of the hood. It's not like you can exactly sit on the hood
of a lesharo... I'm petite enough that I even have trouble reaching
it to wash it!

Remove the hood!

But in reality, two step ladders and a board or a scaffold with walking board would be just fine as well.

I know it would be a pain to do, but may offer enough restorative quality without having to replace the windshield.

Cheers, Scott
