Check out <a href="http://www.4wd.com." target="_blank">www.4wd.com.</a> They have a product called "Novus Plastic Cleaner/Polish". It's a real easy 2-step product that makes your windows like new.

Or run down to the local marina or boat supply store. They sell stuff for plastic windows on boat covers called plastic restorer- $9.99 or so and it works like a miracle....

You'll find a number of products at your auto parts store that do a decent job of cleaning the windows and removing minor scratches. Many swear by a particular brand, others don't care. The bottom line - you'll clean them up, but you will not get major scratches out, period.

As for the top - soapy water and a brush. I'd shy away from many products that leave any residue. For optimal care, your soft top needs to breathe, and many products inhibit this.

being a pilot, if you can get a hold of a can of PRIST thats the best stuff for windows. A/C windows are usually non glass and need special stuff, i use that on my jeep windows for normal wiping, and you dont use water with it. It also puts and ionized film on the plastic that repels dust. You can find this stuff at any a/c hanger, at any small field.

I recently used the 3M Marine Plastic Window Cleaner that I got from a boating store. It worked great and also works like a wax that helps the water run off easier. It was about 10 bucks and I didn't use a whole lot. Major scratches are there to stay but small ones will clear up some.

Cleaner - I found stuff from Starbrite at the boat shop (10 bucks a bottle). It works well combined with 303 protectant. Hope this helps.
