clean up of windshield glass repair resin

I want to try out one of those windshield glass repair kits (for stone chips and cracks) tomorrow (July 4th) and the mfr customer service line is already shut down for the holiday. The instructions are pretty straight forward EXCEPT there is nothing about clean up of the injector "gun" or finishing off the resin itself once it has set up.

Has anybody used one of these kits? (Mine's from JC Whitney and is made by Repair Products Unlimited). Is there anything special one needs to do to clean out resin residue in the injector? I'm doing multiple repairs and don't want to wreck the injector with hardened resin on my very first shot.

Also, once the resin has been injected into the crack and sets up, do you just scrape off the residue on the glass with a razor blade or is there a more preferred way to clean up the repair?

Always learning...and sharing what I've learned.

epoxy injecter

hi,to clean the injector up,use acetone,and anything that will fit into the tube,brush,toothpick,or anything else, i have NOT used the kit,but i would use a new razor blade to cut as close to the glass as i could,then some rubbing compound to get it smooth. let us know how the epoxy works for you.

I would like to hear more about this and how it works out for you. I have some serioud deep scaratches in my windshield.

I can't afford to replace it for a long time, so anything that would improve the looks is great.
