    cleanest windshield ever

    I don't know if this is common knowledge, but I discovered that using a clay bar and lubricant on my windshield followed by window cleaner and cloths resulted in the cleanest windshield I have had since the car was new.

    Great tip, what products?

    Mine is so pitted at 15k that there is no hope for it, except eventual replacement!

    I happened to use a Pinnacle clay bar with Pinnacle clay bar lubricant, but most top brand clay bars should work fine. The final cleaning was with Griot's Garage Glass Cleaner. I usually use Sprayway Glass Cleaner in the aerosol can - it's alcohol based and works like a dream. I buy it at Costco.

    Here's a good clay bar and lubricant set:

    If you want to splurge, I have used and trust Swissvax products (my Z8 won 2nd place at the local Concours d'Elegance with Swissvax Crystal Rock wax on it):

    This wax is $1100 for a 200ml container , but you use very little at a time - my detailer actually applied it from his stock.

    Finally, for all types of detailing, I use 1Z EINSZETT products on a regular basis:

    I think the 1Z line of products are the best quality/value on the market.

    Another approach which I have used on cars since the early 80s is to clean it with 0000 steel wool. Sounds dangerous, but it works well and causes no harm. Follow it up with a glass polish (or any polish, or Rain-X) treatment.
