What is the plastic on my windshield?
Polycarbonate is similar to plastic in that it is strong, but somewhat soft. It is the same material used to create bullet-resistant glass (which is actually polycarbonate sandwiched between glass) and fighter jet windshields.
How do you clean a cloudy golf cart windshield?
The best way to clean your golf cart windshield is with a solution of water and mild soap. Avoid using a glass cleaning product on these windshields because the ammonia in glass cleaner can cause damage to acrylic or polycarbonate materials.
How do you glue a golf cart windshield?
Acetone will melt the windshield. Your best bet is to CAREFULLY use a single edge razor blade and remove most of the residue. After that, apply 3M Automotive Trim Adhesive to the new part and press it on. This material is a double sided tape-like product and it works great.
How do you remove a melted suction cup from a windshield?
Yup, simple and easy. Just use a little windex to lube the blade as it slides. Make sure you do not get it on any tint. Even better use a tint safe cleaner with the blade.

Try applying household products such as white vinegar or vegetable oil (eucalyptus oil or lemon oil can work particularly well on wood). Soak a paper towel and press it on the area, letting it sit for five minutes. Gently peel loosened residue away.

The black band and dots around your windshield are called the “frit,” or the “frit band.” The frit band is a strip of black enamel around your windshield that is baked into the glass and it performs many functions.
Can you use plastic as a windshield?
In general, plastics like acrylic and polycarbonate are perfect for windshields because of their light weight, durability, and ability to be formed into very specific shapes easily. Since windshields and auto glass can take up a fair amount of the exterior, keeping that weight down can make a big difference over time.

How do you remove a rubber seal from a windshield?
Take some rope and insert it between the inside rubber and the pinchweld around one top corner. This may help get you started when you push out the top corner. I use a hook tool to pull the rubber off the pinchweld as I was pushing out. You have to push the rubber and the glass out at the same time.
