Make sure to pay attention, so you can choose the correct directions for the best results. Depending on the damage, the following steps should be followed:
Rain X Windshield Kit to Repair Cracks
Before you do anything, it is essential to read all instructions. This will help you avoid making mistakes and clearly understand how each tool should be used.
Take the resin solution out of the container and prepare it for use. To avoid spillages, ensure that the dispersion hole is placed correctly and open. Apply the resin slowly and carefully to the crack.
Apply the resin evenly from one side of the crack to another, removing any solution left behind before moving on to the next part. It is possible to stop between applications to look at the crack from a 45-degree angle.
This will allow you to see the resin is applied, and the areas that are shaded will be visible. Allow the solution to dry in between five and ten minutes.
Another angle is taken at the windshield. This time, it’s from a 45-degree angle. To release air pockets around the crack where the resin was applied:
- Apply only a tiny amount of pressure to the windshield’s interior.
- Apply a little more resin solution to visible cracks.
- If necessary, apply pressure from the inside of your windshield.
Once you are sure that the crack is clean, apply the resin solution again to the crack. As you apply the resin again, take the curing strips out of the kit and place them along cracks. You can use as many curing strips as you like. As you’re using the curing strips, make sure you don’t leave any air bubbles.
Put the windshield in direct sunlight for five to ten seconds to absorb the sun’s rays. You can also use ultraviolet light if there isn’t any sun. Then wait until the resin dries before removing the strips. A razor blade is provided to remove the hardened resin. Take a moment to admire your great results.
How to use Rain X Windshield Kit Repair Kit for Repairing Bull’s-Eyes, Chips, and Stars
Use the razor blade to remove any glass fragments from the kit. Next, place your applicator base in the desired spot on the windshield. Place the applicator’s base directly on the affected area. The suction cups must also be attached to the windshield. These suction cups should not be placed on cracks.
The resin chamber should be secured to the base of the applicator. The rubber mouth should be placed directly on the surface that will be impacted. You can see the inside of your car to confirm that the alignment is correct. To gently touch the glass’ surface, the resin chamber should be placed in.
Depending on the extent of damage, add three to six drops of resin solution to the resin chamber attached to the windshield. To fix any leakages, turn the clockwise direction.
Screw the pressure driver into your resin chamber in a clockwise direction. Follow the instructions carefully. Then, remove the driver from the resin chamber and re-insert it according to the instructions.
After you have removed all air:
- Remove the application base.
- Make sure you clean up any resin leftovers.
- Use curing strips.
- Move the vehicle into direct sunshine after finishing your final touches.
