What's everyone using to clean the plastic windows on their tops? Also looking at alluminum corners, does anyone make a corner with flares that aren't comp cut?

Savvy and Genright both have aluminum corners, either in blanks or OE wheel openings, and then add the flare of your choice.

Windows I just use soap and warm water with a soft cloth.

I have heard lots of people using Plexus on softtops and other plastics but I have never tried it myself.

I use the Bestop vinyl window cleaner. It works great and can remove light scratches. I ordered this product at 4wheelonline.

I used to use had wash them with soap and warm water, then wipe them down with Pledge and a clean, dry micro-fiber towel. It seemed to clear them up and the sheen helped shed soil; keeping them cleaner longer. :dunno:

Not dumb. It's a pain in the ass. The way I put pics here is copy/paste a link from my jeepforum build thread. Jeepforum allows me to upload my pics straight off my computer hard drive. I get to skip the whole photobucket debacle. There's other pic hosting sites than kickthephotobucket, but I'm not interested. Jeepforum works for me, since I'm already there. I link photos to my pirate4x4 build thread from jeepforum as well. It's stood the test of time. Most of the pics are still up.
