Hi guys,
After I acid clean my rear windscreen of water spots/marks about a month ago, today continue on to polishing the rest of all the windows including the front windscreen.


Dirty, with paint over spray. Water don't even bead and just sticks onto the glass making visibility bad

Start with clay.


Just a section of front windscreen, clay already so dirty.....:smokin:


Bring out Bosch ROB and LC white pads


DG Glass Polish


Apply


Polish


Glass Polish plenty of dust


After polish wash away the dust but water on the glass looks like this


Dig out all my old arsenal. Rain X, Rain Act, Rain Fly, Rain O. Got more, some finish already.....hahhahahhahahha:rofl:


After apply Rain repel stuff, water glide off.....


Thanks for viewing......:driver:

PIAA?....:biggrin:
PIAA wipers after some use will leave behind some silicon or something on the windscreen that's better than RainX. Don't use both. Pointless.
PIAA, just afraid ppl steal only since is such an expensive wiper. Since car fish is parked outside. Unless Jetta then still okay.

In covered car park and also inside the house.

There is one more brand seems got warranty for 2 years...
DuraEdge. Review of their products sounds real good but how good if put to test I'm not sure.

Anyone use before? Doesn't cost as much as PIAA but not as cheap as those RM20 per piece..about RM50 per piece I think

My unbranded silicone wipers does the same, probably the effect won't last as long as the PIAA ones, but good enough. Anyway, the wipers are still in use after 4 years....:adore:

Here is the story, after which see whether worth or not.
Dura Edge started out with lifetime warranty. My ex colleague was using, claim twice. Both times if not mistaken is the end gave way and wiper rubber comes out. Then later batches came with 5 years warranty, and lately they only come with 2 years warranty. My RM20 silicone also use for 4 years and still using, so why bother....:biggrin:

If you're smart, :thefinger: you'll do what I did. Alcohol wipe off the PIAA branding and modify the clip so it's not easily removable. Both my cars are on PIAA and the Myvi has been using it for close to 3 years now still going strong. And the windscreen is coated with some sort of repellant or something from the wiper. It works great to disperse water.

There's this brand - I forgot the name that still offers lifetime warranty and they'll send a dispatch bike to your location to install / swap / change / warranty your wipers. RM80+ per pair. Whilst it's great it has warranty and all, and PIAA doesn't - the fact that I've never had to claim anything from PIAA means it's a one time deal. Just need to maintain it by wiping off the particles on the screen so it doesn't affect the wiper when in movement.

Bro, how do you know that powdery substance is dirt or ground sponge? is it necessary to clay first before polishing?
If you do not feel any surface contaminants on the glass then no need to clay. Mine had some paint over spray.
Those are dust from dried up polish....

Nola. You can't tell they're PIAA. But since I told you guys I'll have to kill you guys now.

Next time I'll show you my wipers. I got 2 cars on PIAA (3 if include my old Hero). All are fantastic condition and look super stock. Modified clip so cannot be easily removed. My stupid friend welded his to his car. *facepalm*

The best condition so far is the kelisa. Only the spoiler part not that good. Worse one will be Kancil paint condition

I'd like to see you try to remove the wipers first :thefinger: But having said that you can have my wipers if you can remove them :smokin:
