I have a couple of one inch long scratches on the outside of the rear window. Is it possible to buff or polish these out. Is this something that can be done safely at home with a Dremel or should I leave it to a glass shop if its possible?

if you can feel them with your fingernail, the WILL not come out. if you can't, then a place like EASTWOOD has some products that might work.

Tricked is right about eastwood. The stuff is called Rhodite. Its an abrasive polish applied with a rotary tool and a special drum buff. Before investing the time and effort in a kit designed to restore a whole windshield, I'd see the glass doctor for a repair quote (he's got the same stuff). The old "fingernail rule" is also tried and true.

I'll second the motion on the Glass Doctor or a local body shop. I would discourage purchasing a glass buffer and doing the job yourself. These machines require a degree of skill to operate and I would not want my Ody to be the guinea pig.

I have a Toyota Camry that we let the wiper blades wear out, it did a terrible number on the windshield. I purchased a product from a glass place that sounds just like Rhodite. Mine was called Rare Earth by a company called Somaca. I forgot what I paid for it, but it was a little pricy and worth every penny. Since I used a cheap electric orbital Sears car polisher and not the proper buffer, it took a long long time and surprised me with very good results. I just read the container, the product is "Cerium Oxide Glass Polishing Compound". A container will last forever, a small amount goes far.
