After we successfully cleaned up a foggy headlight with this product, we wanted to give it a real workout. At the shop we had a '58 Porsche Speedster with a removable hardtop. The rear window is plexi (hard plastic) and was severely scratched up after 50 years of high speed touring (and storage). The window had hazing, light scratches and few deep gouges -- the perfect test platform.
