The side windows on the Baja are looking foggy and will not come clean, I think it is the build up of spray on wax from the car wash places over the years, any idea how to clean this up and make them clear again?

Try some paint thinner, or carb spray. If that doesnt work get out the old razor blade scraper.

Razor blade for sure and some windex. My friend does Glass and he used windex and a razor on my baja and 5 minutes later it was crazy clear!

those are all great Ideas........ I was an automotive detailer for a couple years...... my suggestion is steel whool and some decent glass cleaner. it is the safest thing because what ever you use is gonna drip and could get on your paint mess it up if you get something eats paint.

I agree with Bajaman87. Use FINE steel wool the real soft stuff. It works very well dry but you can also use wet with water or glass cleaner. It also works very well on chrome to get rid of that haze and lihgt surface rust. Note: some newer chrome and aluminum wheels have a clear coat on them and you would not want to use steel wool on them as it will dull the finish. Another great thing about steel wool is the price.

You have to use the very fine stuff. It works great. And won't harm glass or chrome. I learned about it when I was young working at an auto body shop.

I vote for the extra fine steel wool also. Have used it several times. I always use it with glass cleaner of vinegar.
