    Thumbs up Polished/Sealed glass today

    I used GRIOT`s polished, then sealed ALL of the glass on my F-150, and did just the windshield on our Sport Trac. Was a bit of work, but am hoping it was/is worth the effort.

    Will do the remaining windows, and moon roof on the Sport Trac when it quits raining, (maybe by the end of the week), and THEN, I have the wife`s F-150 to do.

    From what I can see, it sheets the water off as advertised. Hope it lasts !!! LOL

    Polished/Sealed glass today

    I did the same last month. Mines pretty much gone. I applied like recommended.

    Polished glass. I cleaned with gyeon prep. Coated in cross hatch pattern. Let haze added secomd layer wiped off 15 mins later....

    Im sure I gummed something up in application but still disappointed. Keep us updated.

    Note: iíve used wipers almost everyday i drive 80 miles back and forth to work and Washington is getting hit with a pineapple express so its been raining literally everyday.

    I also lived in the Pacific Northwest (Bellevue, and Issaquah) for 11 years and endured the constant rain..

    I found that keeping new Factory wiper inserts in there did more to help than anything else.. The wiper insert edges do wear on glass, especially if the glass is not deeply cleaned/polished..

    Eventually, when they invented Carpro Ceriglass Glass Polish, I applied it to all my glass with my Makita and the glass turned out really smooth and clear.. It repelled water better with just that.

    I think you can also use a Random Orbital with a small pad and it will work great as well..You want to be able to "polish" the glass.. A machine properly used can do this way better than by hand..

    I polished with griots rayon glass pads and their fine polish. It also contains cerium oxide but i believe not as agressive as Ceriglass (have too havenít tried). Iím going to try PIAA silicon wipers next.

    Exterior glass is so worth coating. Makes all the difference in bad weather. Worth the time and effort to do it. I use the Pinnacle glass twins. Great results and long lasting.
