Testing the Kit
Sure, the kit's very complete, but that doesn't mean that it's not a fancy gimmick. It was time to put it to the test, and one of the trucks at the shop had a fresh, round chip in the windshield thanks to the stream of gravel that poured from a family of trailered ATVs. We gathered the suction cups and specialized pressure pushers and went to work. The instructions were pretty good, too, explaining each tool and how to use it. The whole process took about 10 minutes total. The last step is to peel away a sheet of clear plastic to check the results. Much to our surprise the rock chip had vanished! The windshield was so clear that we couldn't find the repaired section to take a picture. As with any repair kit of this sort, it has limitations, but with patience and persistence, you can save a lot of money by repairing your own windshield. Rock chips be damned!
