windshield chip repair kit North Territory step 7When you are sure all the pockets and crevices in the damage are completely filled, remove the applicator from the screen by lifting the edge of the windscreen seal. Mop up with a cloth all surplus resin, remove any resin from your applicator and stow it in the kit. Apply GOLD resin to the crater from a bottle or a black resin dispenser (recommended) taking care to illuminate air bubbles. Apply a piece of mylar film to cover the resin and the crater. Roll a resin bottle along the film to create a thin layer of resin. Expose to sunlight or the UV lamp for about 2 minutes. The resin should be hard and crackle as the film is removed.
