I have a few scratches in the glass, what's a great product to use to polish the glass?

Eastwood's glass scratch remover and polishing kit worked for me.

Make sure you get the right one. I believe they have one for windshields and one for tempered glass. You will shatter the tempered glass if you use the wrong one.

I need something for the rear window on the 78 El Camino.

You don't remove scratches, you grind the glass down to the bottom of the scratch. Rear glass is tempered

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

So this would be a problem to repair?

No it's not a problem if you use the right product. He was just making the point that you will be removing some of the glass surrounding the scratch to get the scratch out.

Thanks. I was concerned whether the tempered glass would break going through the process.
