    You may try calling a local glass place or find an auto restoration shop near you. I know a lot of guys have original glass buffed when restoring cars, especially glass that's either not remanufactured or hard to find.

    I remember water being used to keep the glass cool during the buffing process. It is a mess if your wipers scratch the windshield.
