I have to think that what would be a stone chip in laminated glass would end up being a pile of glass pebbles in your lap and a hurricane blowing in your face.

I saw that happen when I was living in the UK. A guy was passing me and something hit his windshield. The thing just exploded and I even had chips flying over my car. I bet he needed new underwear!

If the scratch disappears when it’s wet then I would try to find something to “clear” it with like sodium silicate or maybe wax it. Rain X may work too so I’d try that first. Whatever you do, clean the glass with something strong like acetone b/w attempts to get all of the old whatever off.

Be careful of your paint!!!

...sorry George but keep acetone as far away from your paint as possible...but I agree some kind of clear may fill the voids,but which one?
