Long windshield cracks are not fixable. Only the ones that are caused by a 
little pebble are. These  are under an inchin diameter and usually star 
shaped or a little curved crack

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.
