Scratches on driver window is their a fix?

I bought my truck used from a dealer and didn't notice that the previous owner must of open and closed the window when it was full of mud. I was wondering if their is a way to fix the scratches without buying a new window or do i just have to live with the scratches.

Not much you can do after the damage is done...

You can get some pretty deep ones out with eastwood's kit.

I watched my buddy buff some real nasties out with it. I have a few of my own as well.

My kit is on the way.

Could you post pics so we can get a better idea of the severity of the scratches. :-)

mine is the same if not worse.

I think i'm going to pull the window and lay it flat on a saw horses to buff it out.

Yup my front windows look just like that too, you'll start noticing it on other trucks too. I don't know how it works, but I guess the Ford seals are just junk. Mine collects dust and dirt and thats what scratches up the windows.

Some more info here, Scratches on outside of windows? - PowerStrokeNation

Seems new seals aren't all that pricey and might be an improved design to avoid these scratches.

If your fingernail catches on the scratches its done....no polishing will fix it.
