I am calling this one done, finally. 
After messing up the windshield that was all I could see sooooo. 

I spent a couple hours in total today polishing out windshield and doing more weathering. At least an hour just on polishing out the windshield with the following wet sand paper, 
400/600/1500/2000/2400/3200/4000/6000/8000/12000 then 
corn startch and some ultra sound gel mixed into a paste. 

I masked off the wiper sweep in the windshield. Then spent some more time 
with my Iwata HP-BH air brush and black wash. 

I am happy with it now.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the look in and feed back. Defiantly glad to back in the fold with you lot. I found it interesting the little thing and tricks I have/had forgotten. Like riding a bike, it's coming back.
