If you have spots on your windows try this stuff it worked great for me, and you could even use some 0000 steel wool pads to apply it and those spots don't have a chance, I picked this up from Napa Auto Parts, just don't use the steel wool on your mirrors it may scratch them but on the windows it works great.



Nice van by the way.

I've heard newspaper is good for cleaning winders. Is that true?

It doesn't last long but it's easy and works great. Also go buy a new chamois, the synthetic ones work great and I've heard good things about the new microfiber ones. This will help with the spots tremendously.

I have scratched glass with a razorblade before so be careful, it's probably not the blade but the dirt it scrapes off getting dragged across the glass, but the result is the same. I have not tried the steel wool, that at least might make less visable swirly scratches with the dirt than straight ones with a blade, if any at all. I might have to try that someday.

Nice job on the paint restoration neighbor. I just love those 92-95 GM vans. I'ts the grill. I really like them. I wonder if there is a generic name for those model years. Also great tips on water spots. I bought my van water spotted and had just come to the conclusion that I was going to have to go buy something to get rid of them 'cause elbow grease and a dozen washingsd just hasnt done it.
