Default Windshield Pitting

I don't know if this is the right place to post this thread but...

I have noticed that I am getting a lot of pits in my windshield from rocks and such. Like A LOT. Is there a way that I can have this repaired without like replacing the whole windshield? I mean if they can "patch" a crack or whatever, cant they fix my pits? (hey that rhymed!! hehe)

I've seen do-it-yourself windshield polishing kits which remove a small layer of glass to "even" things out. I don't know how well they work, but that's probably your only option short of changing the glass.

I would call some auto glass companies and ask around.

Kinda along these lines, I wondered why they don't sell a clear-bra type film for the windshield like they do for the headlights and front end of the car. Just wondering. If anyone has any info on this, let us know.

Hmm, visability issues? It seems like they could make one that wouldn't hinder visability too much, but it might be illegal to cover up the windshield even if it's clear.

Yeah, I figured there would probably be a legal issue w/ it. The other problem area I figured may be the windshield wipers not working on the film.

The general rule of thumb for a windshield scratch or nick is that if you can catch it with your fingernail, it's too deep to polish out.

Eastwood sells a good polish kit for use with an orbital.
