However, as a “stop-gap” measure I have been impressed so far by the performance of the Rain-X windshield repair kit. I honestly didn’t think it would work as well as it did, especially considering that I am not a particularly practical person (i.e. I didn’t do a great job at actually completing the repair process) and also that I applied it in a rush in a busy shopping mall carpark. I then removed the tools according to the manufacturers instructions, applied a drop of resin to the impact point and covered it with a curing strip from the kit. Once I moved my car to direct sunlight I let it sit for 20 minutes. I touched the curing strip all around the point of impact and saw that no resin was still liquid under the strip, removed it, and scrapped off the excess with the razor blade. As the resin cures it bonds with the glass and dries in a transparent fashion, meaning that you can see through it like normal glass. This recently happened to me on a trip to Queenstown, New Zealand (a town famous for its scenery and plethora of ‘adrenaline-junkie’ activities e.g. bungee jumping, skiing/snowboarding, canyon jetboating etc). I’m not sure of the scientific principles behind how the resin works, unfortunately. Is The Rain-X Windshield Repair Kit Easy To Use?

One thing to note is that the kit claims it is good for multiple repairs, and certainly there are enough curing sheets supplied. However, because of the way you have to cut the bottle top off to use it, I don’t think it is all that practical to re-use. Should You Buy This Kit? Apply curing strips, move windscreen into direct sunlight. Wait and then scrape off any excess resin. The excess dried resin comes off in white flakes, which makes a bit of a mess. It took me about 5 minutes to do a thorough job here, as I didn’t want any leftover resin obstructing the view. After the curing process (which I probably didn’t wait quite long enough for but I was in a hurry) you peel off the curing sheets and begin the strangely satisfying process of scraping off the excess dried resin with the included razor blade.. You can also use Rain-X on Shower Doors, or on any glass doors or windows in your home, for more amazing water-beading magic!If you want a repair that's practically undetectable, consider the Permatex Bullseye Windshield Repair Kit. It's specifically designed to correct bullseye-shaped damage as large as one and a quarter inches in diameter. This product is compatible with most laminated glass windshields. One of its best features is its one-component application. No mixing or heat is necessary. These kits are like the Swiss Army knives of automotive care, using epoxy resin to fill, seal and stabilize those pesky chips 1 inch or less in diameter. But here’s the catch, timing is everything. The sooner you act, the better the results.

Would I say this is a pro-grade repair? Of course not. But considering the circumstances and what I needed it to do, I really was rather impressed. How Long Does The Repair Last? If you wait too long, an expensive professional replacement may be the only fix. But if the chip is small and you act promptly, DIY windshield repair kits can save you time and money.Unfortunately I won’t be able to give my own experience as to the long-term longevity of the repair, as the whole windshield is being replaced under insurance this week. The Crown Range road is notorious for challenging weather conditions in the winter, such as the time this Australian tourist managed to flip their car in a snow storm when heading off the road to fit snow chains:
