i have a small chip in the windshield of my 68 deville. theres a crack through the chip thats about the length of my a dime. is this repairable? i always get approached by the clowns at the mall claiming they can repair a windshield and i wasn't sure what exactly is repairable.thanks.

It can be repaired but if they guy doesnt know what he is doing then it can leave the crack to be seen from inside the car. I had a crack in my tow trucks windshield and they plugged it with some sort of jell that filled it in and left no marks. I tried it on my caddy and it didnt do crap and its still seen. Just make sure you dont run the defrost to much or it can spider out if you know what that means. Then it cant be repaired

that my biggest fear........finding and replacing the windshield. where did you take your tow truck when you had it professionally done? was it some random garage or a shop that specialized in glass?
