Windscreen restoration - how far can you go?
« on: June 30, 2015, 08:00:55 pm »
When I bought my Connie it came with an old/spare short windscreen.  The P.O. obviously went thru a phase when he was big into stickers - I am guessing circa 1999, based on his choice in stickers.  The screen clearly had a #3 Dale Earnhardt sticker on it, as well as a Budweiser "WhazzUp" sticker.  Both are gone, but the residue remains. 

The screen doesn't have a lot of deep scratches, but is a bit yellowed, and then there is the sticker goo.  I would like to try out the shorter screen for the summer, but can't bolt it on looking like this.  I know some folks have had good results in polishing screens.  I seem to recall a thread about it, but I couldn't find it. 

Anyone have a link?  Suggestions on how to proceed?
