Hi all, anyone have recommendations for glass buffing/repair. I've got a side panel that has a few scratches in it. I tried a generic compound and it just made it foggy. Thanks

Depends on how deep it is. If it is not completely through the gel you can wet sand it out. 600 grit just until its gone then 800, then 1000 follow that up with a compound, polish and wax. take your time and keep the paper wet. If at anytime you see a spec of black stop as you are starting to go all the way through the color. You can take out some pretty nasty looking scratches with this method.

Just using a compound on the gel will leave it looking foggy. Have to follow up with a polish and then wax to get the shine back.
