Ok I have a update on this topic again. I cleaned the windows then I used a clay bar on them and after that I used griots garage glass polish with a buffer and it still wont get the acid rain off. Now the only thing that did work was I wet sanded a very small area with 1000 grit sand paper and that DID work. It got off all of the acid rain in that tiny little spot I tried it on but the only problem was it left quite a few scratch marks in the glass. So should I try wet sanding again with a higher grit paper or will that leave marks too? Thanks guys.

Higher grid should leave finer and finer marks. At this point, you should look into how to polish glass?

I already polished the glass and that didn't work either. I guess once its etched in the glass there is no getting it out? I don't know. I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem and was able to fix it by trying a different product on the glass then I have used but thanks anyways. Also, I already looked up how to polish the glass before I bought the griots garage glass polish. I followed the directions but it did not work.

No. I meant look into glass polishing to see how you can use gradually finer sandpaper until you have a nice smooth surface. Good luck.

Well I'm probably too late but I was going to say that at my old detailing job we would use this acidic like goo and apply that onto the windows with steel wool (while wearing gloves because this stuff was kind of bad for you), let it dry for a minute, then wipe it off normally. You had to do it a few times but it definitely got the acid rain off. If you don't think its too late then I'd look into something like that. Good luck!
