Re: mobile or van setup for chip repair

If you are doing just chip repair all you need is a car that gets good mpg! Why would you want a larger vehicle? I use a 2017 Nissan Sentra with plenty of room for all my equipment.

I'm thinking of an across the board $10 increase (retail, dealerships and rentals) What I'm questioning is the rental agencies increase. If I may be so bold, what are yo...

Re: Covid-19 Shut down

I'm thinking of starting up next week but depends on what our governor says. I am mobile only and every single car I work on (as everybody else in this business) has been occupied by someone who I don't have a clue where they have been or if they were healthy. The vehicle likely has not been sanitiz...

Covid-19 Shut down

I have been shut down for the past 4 weeks and follow Maine's Governors State shut down, as Windshield Repair is not an essential business. Still no stimulus money, unemployment benefit ...

I hope things have changed but when I installed 28 years ago, Safelite's windshields could look like this!

I was a little confused by your web site. I clicked on windshield repair and was reading about replacement.

Re: Surface Pit Repair - WA State recommendations?

Without seeing those pits I'd say both the responses are correct. If they are just surface pits there would be nothing to "repair'. They could be lightly drilled to rough up the pit so resin will adhere better, however the appearance might only be 50% better.

Re: Star leg not filled

Houstonguy, I 'll have to be the bad guy here! Did you get some training before starting in this business? Aluminum foil to cover the bridge and pressure on the inside of the windshield?! And yes, there is a very good chance that curing will take place when you lift the towel off the bridge. You sai...
