Scratches in plastic windows

I just bought a 1997 Jeep Wrangler and it has some scratches in teh soft top and i was wondering if anyone would have any idea how to get them out. I heard using car polish would work but i figured id come here cause ive had problems with my cherokee and you guys helped me so any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Maguires plastic polish. Available at all your finer automotive stores (ie. Autozone, Pep Boys).

soap and water with a soft cotton cloth. NEVER paper products.

Are you talking about scratches on the clear plastic windows?
Or the soft top itself?
Cause my windows were scratched all to hell after only 2 months of owning my jeep.
I would love to take that look away.

Mopar makes a soft glass cleaner. You usually can get it at any Jepp Dealer. I have used it numerous times and it really works great.

Use furniture polish like Pledge. Spray on buff it off, works like a charm.

Novus plastic cleaner and polish work really well. It even comes in different strengths depending on how scratched the windows are. The windows on my 98 still look great.

Cheers, John
