Not too sure about fixing scratches, but new non-dated glass is relatively inexpensive. About $100 for a windshield or rear window. Just my .02 and something to think about

Eastwood Co. has a system they advertise for polishing glass. Not sure if it would work for you.www.eastwoodco.com

Speaking from experience if you can feel the scratches with your finger nail then it's too deep to repair/buff out. You'll need to replace them. Good luck Pete

...and speaking from lots of experience, your wasteing your time trying to buff scratches from tempered glass. You can buff scratches from your windshield to a point but its very easily distorted by buffing to much.

The stuff that you use to buff glass is called Cerium Oxide and can be had at just about any glass store.

I buffed very deep scratches out of the expensive front windsheild of the 57 succesfully. It is slow, tiring from holding a shaking drill hard against the glass, and VERY messy. I would advise replacing cheap glass, and only using the polishing setup on date coded or expensive glass. Find out what a local shop will charge to buff it for you if you decide to buff, because the mess and cost of the kit may be less than no mess and more for someone else to do it. I am happy with my results, but thought I would never clean the orange goo up.
