    I'm personally not a fan. There is too high a chance of scratching the glass. If the glass is really hammered (I mean REALLY hammered, as in old JDM import hammered) then sometime 0000 steel wool and clay lube can help, but I would only use it externally and if all chemical means don't work

    When I detailed for a panel shop, I used to resort to blades for heavy overspray on glass. Very easy to irreparably scratch the glass with a moment of inattention.
    When training a replacement (we went through about 6), every single one damaged the glass more often than not

    I have cleaned over 5000 pieces of glass with razor blades, and scratched not one.
    I wish I was exaggerating, but dealership work means a lot of stickers/paint pen etc to get off glass.
    With correct amounts of lube and the right angle you will never have a problem.
    I wedge a finger under the blade to set the correct angle, and use this:

    Have just got some Carpro Ceriglass and a 3 inch polishing pad. Hope to be able to try it this weekend.
    When is the next track day?
