    what to do with for scratched windshield

    Recently bought a 1976 Aristocraft nineteen. Paid next to nothing for it because it WASN'T running, I'm a mechanic by trade so engine work isn't a problem, it's running now and hopefully going to put it in the water Sunday. My problem is the windshield is covered in light scratches. Most of the...
