Response to Best treatment for clear plastic to look like glass?
A friend of mine has ordered some very thin glass specimen slides. He says that he has used them before and had great results. I will be getting a bunch to play with, so will report the results.
I have always used Future Floor wax (same product as the Johnson as I understand) on my aircraft canopies and have been quite happy with the results. I like the way you can tint Future and make your taillights stand out (also good for little puddles of wee , just saying).
But the flat panes of a windshield add extra problems due to the thickness of the plastic. I have tried polishing, future and dirt and never been completely happy with the results.
Whenever I can hide a windshield with a tarp (often seen on Commonwealth Jeeps) or leave them off altogether like the side curtains on most Canadian and British softskins. Abstinence can work.
I have tried acetate sheet, saran wrap (cling film) and had varied results. The saran actually looked pretty good on the side curtains of my Chevrolet FAT.
