Tips! Before your repair!
- Keep the chip as clean as possible. You can even put a piece of scotch tape to help keep dirt, dust, pollen, water and whatever else may contaminate it. The cleaner the chip, the better the visual outcome of the repair will be.
- Try NOT to rapidly cool or heat the windshield. Its the quick change in temperature which causes the glass to expand and contract increasing the odd that a small chip will grow.
- Keep moisture out! (if possible). Don’t worry, if its raining or it gets wet it’s not the end of the world. The windshield just needs to dry completely before beginning the chip repair.
