Scratch on front glass of mirror


I had a friend polish and buff a windshield of a car for me.The wiper arm had worn a groove. I am not sure what he used to do it, but it made it much less noticeable. Is the mirror portable so as to bring in to a glass shop? Or is it a built in?.

I believe I would still first contact a glass shop. They often go to homes to install windows and such, if they have a way to buff or polish it, It mostly likely could be done in place. I would think some info could be gathered on the phone at least to see if is possible. I have noticed on may scratches in translucent (i have mostly tried on plastics) materials scratches are less noticed with a good coat of car wax. I not sure if this would help or hurt your situation though.

you can get it at home imp store or fish supply store (they sell it to repair fish tanks, you will need a flat box cutter or flat razor blade, put a very small amt like pea size at one end of the scratch and drag it with the blade. continue until it is filled. clean very well with blade let set on its own, about an hour later you will have to scrape it again. worked for me. be very careful and dont get cut.

Many thanks, Aughra. I will look for silicone in DIY store, and try out your advice. Watch this space - but don't hold your breath 'cos I don't rush into things! Will probably take a few weeks to get round to going to the store!!
