  I've tried it. My dad had bought it a while ago to try and polish the
scratches out of the glass doors on his house.  I was bored one day while
visiting him, so I tried it on my Triu^H^H^H^HMG's windshield. I got
reasonably minimal results.  I attribute it to my lack of effort though,
rather than an inherent problem with the kit.  Part of my problem was that I
only had a non-variable high speed drill and it made it really hard to
polish evenly and smoothly.  Something like a low-speed buffer would work
  It's not a very complicated kit, it's just some glass polishing compound
(in powder form, just add water) and a buffing disk that attaches to your
electric drill, thats it.  You could probably just buy glass polishing
compound and a polishing disk seperately and not pay as much.  But be aware
that polishing compound of any type isn't going to take out even moderately
deep scratches, just the very slight ones.
