Chipped Windshield
« on: March 15, 2019, 02:13:40 PM »
The one downside of taking my truck to NC is that it took a rock to the windshield on the way down. It hit so hard that the noise made my wife and I jump when it happened!

I tried hard to see where it hit, but couldn't see it while we were driving.  (fp)

But on our last day there, I cleaned the windshield spotless, and it was while I was cleaning it that I spotted where the rock hit. It's not huge, but there's clearly a small bullseye divot there.

I thought about buying a $13 windshield repair kit, but opted instead to spend the $40 to get it fixed professionally. I read too many horror stories of people starting off with a tiny chip and then ending up with a large crack when they tried to fix it themselves.

I'm not gonna be that guy  (nope)

The repair kits have always worked pretty good for me.  Have not had to go back and re-do any of them.

I have heard that they tend to work well, but I don't want to risk turning a small chip into a larger crack. For me, it's worth the $40 to have a pro handle it.
