Whenever there is damage to a car's windshield, it needs to be fixed immediately. Because of the specialized manufacturer's installation and testing, the most effective scenario would be to keep the original glass in position. Provided that the damage is small, like a small chip or crack, this is possible. If a crack has spidered, or a more substantial object has significantly cracked your windshield it means it is time for an investment in a new windshield.

But, because of the safety issues, we advise that even these simple repairs be addressed by an auto glass service provider.
Many times, drivers will dismiss a small chip. However, if not dealt with immediately, the problem can become worse.

Can I Use A Paint Chip Repair Kit For A Custom Color?
Recently, I Bought A 2000 Mercury Sable. It Was Originally Red, But The Previous Owner Had It (Poorly) Repainted Black (No Body Damage, Just A Color Change). Now The Paint Is Chipped In A Few Places And Bubbling In A Few Others. I Don'T Want To Pay A Few Grand To Get The Whole Car Repainted, But I Read About Paint Chip Repair Kits (Http://Drcolorchip.Com/) That Require You To Put In A Factory Color Code. Problem Is, I Don'T Know What &Quot;Black&Quot; My Car Is (Touch Up Paint Says &Quot;Black&Quot;, No Number Or Anything). Is Black Black? If I Put In The Code For, Say, Ford 2000 Black, Will It Probably Be Close Enough?
No, black is not black anymore. Most blacks are more like a dark coffee brown. Some blacks have other colors added to them like green or a touch of white. But for small touch ups any black will do. But try and get an enamel to do it with. This is a thicker paint and fills chips better.
But if you ever do try and have the car repaired and refinished, it was probably painted with what is called a factory pack black. This would be a color mixed by the paint manufacturer so as to guarantee a paint match. Like with Du Pont it would be 99K.
Hairline Crack In Windshield Repair?
I Have A Hairline Crack In My Windshield That Is Beginning To Lengthen. It Is Not Bad Now, So Is There Anything I Can Do Or Put On It To Stop The Crack From Progressing?
If the crack has not lengthend to more than about an inch or so, there is an epoxy resin marketed specifically for windshields. It should be available at any local auto parts store, unless it is prohibited for use in your state.
The kit is designed for the little chips in a windshield, cause by gravel thrown up by other cars and trucks. I mean the small ding or the little "star" type crack. It is NOT designed for longer cracks. Even if a repair can be made for such longer cracks, it wouldn't last.
If you find the kit, read the instructions and disclaimers before you buy it. Also, make note of the applicator and other parts included. You will see what I mean about the size of the crack.
If you decide to fix it this way. Do it now. At some point, the crack WILL be to long to repair. One thing about the nature of a windshield crack. It WILL grow.
