Window hints, anyone?

I just replaced the windows on my Jeep, anyone have any hints on how to reduce the scratching? Also, does the Bestop cleaner help?

Does rolling/unrolling cause scratches? Can they be prevented/reduced?

Make sure you always clean them before you roll/store them. DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS, EVER!!!! I've never used the best top stuff, but Maguire's PlastX works pretty well for me.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

When they aren't on the Jeep zip them together using the zippers that attach them to your Jeep. This will protect the insides of the windows.

There are spray-on on the market that works well for hiding scratches in plastic . But anything will "hide" scratches, nothing will remove them without causing distortion. On my Harley, I use tooth paste and my fingers to remove minor scratches. Never, never use those sponges that the service stations have for cleaning your windshield. Nor use any towels of any kind. I always clean mine using my hand and a mild detergent and running water. Same goes for your eye glasses. Water and fingers only. Place a clean towel between them and roll them up and wrap in another towel for storage. Works for me. Scratches are inevitable.
