Windscreen Repair DIY Tool

I had a small windscreen crack and a really small chip that looked like it could easily be filled with a DIY windscreen repair kit. After purchasing a cheap plastic version that seemed to do the trick, I did regret not paying twice as much and simply buying a metal version, so I thought of posting this and letting others know.

Why? Because plastic can only take so much, compared to metal threads. If you are not willing to go with the Aluminium Kit, then I recommend the budget needle version (linked at the very bottom).

You may need a drill to access some spots that the resin cannot get into. A simple heat source can also help, before resorting to a drill, as shown in this video. Also you may want to use a polishing kit simply to polish out very thin scratches. Link below.
