Our Boler windows are badly pitted, cracked and scratched. I don't think there is any hope. I see from the photos, a lot of people replace with tinted materials. Is it the consensus that Lexan is the best? The clear allows vision straight thru when driving. I guess the tinted offers shade from the sun. Is there anything else to consider? What are people happy with? Thanks!

Hi: If you are refering to the front/rear plexi windows it has been discussed here that cleaning and then buffing with Brasso will rejuvinate the plexi from minor pits & scratches and give the windows a nice water shed finish... I have so far bought the Brasso but not had time to try it!!! Sounds like a more simple solution and a "won't hurt to try it" at this point. If it doesn't work they can still be replaced. Tinted Lexan sounds best to me...
