Default Chrome polish for glass

Can Mother's chrome polish be applied using a PC? If yes, then which type of foam pad would be the best choice?

Does anyone know?

Also, does any know how often this should be done?

I guess you could, but you'd likely use too much product and run the risk of splattering it on the surrounding areas. I find I can do the windshield by hand, with a foam applicator, in about 2 minutes to apply. Then, let it dry and wipe it off.

By machine would probably take longer.

If you choose to use a machine, I'd use a white polishing pad.

I'd use Chrome Polish on automotive glass 2 or 3 times a year.

Is there anything in particular you're trying to do -- such as defect removal -- or just routine cleaning/polishing?

I am trying remove 10 years of acid rain etching from the glass and then maintain the clear and clean glass. The etching can only be seen when the wipers are on or the while cleaning the glass. Multiple applications will probably be needed to completely remove the staining/etching, this why I wanted to know about PC application to help reduce time needed to polish the glass. After this is completed periodic maintenance will be done.

Thank you.
