    I've got an old car that still has the original glass all around.

    The winshield and everything cleans up nicely using Eagle 20/20...but after a day or so, it develops a nice film on it (mostly the inside :confused: ) It's like the glass isn't smooth any more and builds deposits fast.

    Since the car has no AC, I always have to roll with the windows down and I'm sure that's a contributing factor.


    But is there any sort of polish I can put on it to fend off the build up for a little longer? :dunno:

    I've been using Clearkote's Quikshine as my glass cleaner. Seems to resist the oily film build-up you are talking about.

    also you could try a layer of 70% tint film. it will also give some UV protection to the interior as well.
