Default Pit/Ding in Windshield

Hello All!

I have a new 04 Acura TL that I picked up about a month ago. I do
alot of freeway driving and must have had a small stone or rock hit my
windshield.

This created a small "pit" or "crater" in the windshield. There is
no spider webbing or large area of impact, just this small pit. It
is right at eye level, drivers side, so I can't help but see it
(probably just because I know it's there!).

Does anyone know of any products (or services) that they have used to
repair such a blemish?

Thanks for your help!

Tim

Auto parts stores carry little kits for filling in such craters. They
have a syringe with a suction cup on the end and cost about $5

They're generally intended for pits that are out of your line of
vision however. I don't know how well they work if you have to see the
road through them.

Generally, the pros won't repair a pit under the swept area of the wiper.
The repair kits do not make it disappear, they just fill it in to keep it
from spreading.

I have a pit like that on my '00 TL. It's going on 1 year old now and
hasn't spread. Unless it does, I plan to continue to ignore it.

If you have glass coverage on your comprehensive policy, the insurance
company will give you a new windshield.
