    Yeah, but now you have to wash and wax it again! Had mine out yesterday and thought I'd get away with it. Sure enough, just as I was heading home, it started SPRINKLING and got little spots all over it! Must wash....must wash...

    Tom, have you tried the cloth we purchased at CF in Cleveland? I find that it works great.

    Barrett, you're right the Corsa Cloth works pretty good as well.

    I've never used a cloth, micro fiber, terry cloth or chamouis that didn't leave streaks! Driving in the rain? The minute I left OKC for Cruise Fest in Colorado Springs it started raining and continued until half way to Amarillo. At the Springs we had a hail storm and rain that one day and the car didn't melt!

    I drove mine all the way from Massachusettes to the Coloradro Springs CF and never hit any rain. Remember the outstanding set up the hotel had for washing our cars? What a great place and what a terrific CAC Cruisefest.

    Squeegee and Windex. Even on inside (but have to go over inside with regular paper towel and Windex when done). But they come C L E A N.

    Anyone ever either have the outsides polished by a shop or do it themselves with a kit (not looking for regular glass care here, but the more abrasive method) for "sparkels" or small pits in the glass?

    Remo the Colorado Springs Cruise Fest was a great event! The accomodations were excellent! That was a well planned event!

    Default Best Solution for Cleaning Covette Glass

    My experience is/was the same with Stoner's Invisible Glass and Newspaper - Not the best results...so I tried a completely different approach with great results.

    Here's my method:
    1) Clay Bar Glass periodically.

    2) Polish the glass with DRI WASH 'n GUARDŽ ULTRA-IONŽ - This product is also very good at removing bugs and other crap after your drive.

    3) Once glass is polished you can use microfibers and just water to clean the glass. The fibers will no longer stick to the glass (as they would without polish leaving those annoying flecks all over your glass)... and no you cannot see the polish in/on the glass. The polish also helps keep things (bugs, grit, etc.) from grabbing and embedding onto the glass.

    Try it sometime...you'll be amazed.

    No I'm not a rep. for Dri Wash n Guard either.
