once they have pits and orange peel its too late... Some people have sanded them smooth and painted them(don't know how well it works), or you can replace them.

You are sol buddy. Bondo, sand paint etc. or you can send them to Dugan racing and they will refinish them for you.

is it a coupe or hatch, if its a hatch i know you can get them, but I've never seen new coupe windows. New glass/moldings run $300-600 pair.

The rubber is permanently attached to the glass so its all one piece. Also if you see these kits the "fix or cover" the molding, avoid them. They are just plastic that sticks on with doublesided tape and look like crap...

we usually sand them with 320 puff a little primer on them and then use a low gloss black.. they look like new.. sometimes theyve just gone to far to be repaired though.. also the stick on covers look good if you take the time to make them fit right.. just my 2 cents..
