I don't know what grit it is, but I've always used toothpaste.

While we're on the subject, has anyone tried having a crack in their 
windshield repaired?  There are companies that claim that they've got some 
stuff that actually bonds the glass together invisibly.  My restoration
project has what looks like a brand new windshield that has a crack down 
the middle.  It would be nice to not have to wrestle a new ($200!) 
windshield into the frame.
