PA glass posted this on Deltas site. Now why didn't I think of this?
I had a 2012 gr Cherokee today. Very tight spacing with underside trim. I managed to get my cold knife in but it was too short to cut through. No way the longer blade was going to get in there. I remembered that I had a 5/16 carbide hole saw. I used Gorilla tape to protect the paint, lubed it up with glass cleaner and bore a perfect hole up against the top. I then had a perfect entry point for the longer blade. Still used an air express on the lower few inches of the sides. I guess I have been doing this about twenty four years, still find something new to try now and then. I will also be using this method to get a wire started when it's so tight you can barely see the end of the wire starter poking through if you start on a side.
back on track. yes you can repair laminated glass,no matter what part it is. as for butch hack allot and the dash slash kid ,maybe you should move to a better forum for your child like banter. glass**** should work.
Did our 1st door glass resin repair today on a laminated door glass. It was a Bullseye repair. Filled in beautiful. Has anyone else done this????
Yeppers. A few months ago a guy made an appointment to get a chip repaired. When he came in I spent five minutes in and out of the vehicle looking at the windshield. He pointed it out on the R/F D/G. I felt like an idiot.
The only thing I didn't like is that its' a challenge to get resin into the bridge on a vertical glass. Used a bendy soda straw as a funnel. Filled great. Polished up good.
Since then we've averaged about two D/G chips a month.
