Anyone have any experience removing light scratches from our Cadillac windshields 

I thought I might need to replace my windshield but when inspected by my windshield guy he seems to feel I could get away with polishing out the scratches as they are mostly light ones 

i have no dings or deep scratches 

I would like to keep the original glass —so this idea is appealing to me 

enjoy

If your windshield guy is doing to the work give it a try. Windshield polishing is like body work sanding, when you think your finished your actually just getting started.

Tony, there are auto glass light scratch removal kits available on Amazon (search auto glass scratch removal) or at your local auto parts store that usually work with a drill, and there are the headlight lens restoration kits (Click Here for one example), but either will only take out very fine scratches and both take a lot of time and effort to be effective. Unless you just like holding a drill and going back and for a long, long time with the auto glass kits, or lots of elbow grease with the lens restoration kits, I would ask your "windshield guy" how much he would charge to buff it out as he probably already has the professional equipment to do it faster and better.

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 3 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
