If you have been a Delta Kits customer for very long, you probably know that we recommend drilling only as a last resort. For the very best cosmetic results, only drill when you are unable to get the resin to flow into the break any other way. That said, we have plenty of customers that do drill, so here are a couple of things to think about.
First, your drill hole itself is going to be quite visible, so drill as shallow as possible (or not at all). Second, remember that when you drill, resin will often drain from that drill hole and leave a small, shiny, or black air bubble. Pit resin is just too thick to flow down into the bottom of your drill hole. So, that air is just trapped there as the pit resin is applied. Air bubbles can also be incorporated into the drill hole from trapped air in the tip of the pit resin bottle or from applying a curing tab improperly.
Store your pit resin bottle upside down. Five minutes before starting the repair turn your pit resin upside down. This will eliminate any chance of air bubbles in the pit resin itself. Make a habit of doing this for every repair. Keep the bottle upside down as you remove the cap and apply the resin. If the bottle is turned upright at any time air bubbles may be trapped in the tip and squeezed out with the resin.
Don’t drill unless you can’t get the resin in any other way. If you have to drill, make sure you never go deeper than 2/3 through the outer lite and try to angle your drill hole toward the bottom of the windshield so the resin is less apt to flow out. Place the lower edge of a curing tab below the drill hole being careful to hold the tab away…. Continue Reading
