How to Repair Windshield Pits in a Car


While smaller chips in a windshield, known as “pits,” may not pose a risk of turning into cracks, they can be dangerous if they obscure your vision. You can repair windshield pits with a special resin-based polymer that fills in pits and is then buffed smooth after it has cured. While some auto parts stores sell supplies separately, it may be easier, and more cost-effective, to purchase a kit. Keep in mind that kits may not all have the same components and you should confirm you have all the necessary items.
