    Judy Greenway: Hi! I am Judy Greenway. I am from Royal Glass and what we are going to do today, we are going to show you the basic windshield repair on your car. We are going to try to save you a little money and show you how it's a nice easy repair. There is two types of repairs we can do and we are going to show you you today. One, the first one is, you can go down to the local auto store and pick up a little repair kit that you can do it yourself. And we are going to show you how to basically do it yourself. Also what we are going to be covering today is a professional repair where we actually drill and we have a bridge method to inject resin. And we use light treated resins that go into the glass, harden, and make a professional repair, looks great, long lasting. It really lasts the glass in the windshield of the car. Now before we get started, there are some basic things you need to know. It's always good to cover your car. You don't want any chemicals, you don't any scratches and have your paper towels ready, its good to put them underneath your wiper blade to catch the excess resins. Now of course, I am going to put my sunglasses on. You need sunglasses, you need eye protection, you need goggles or just your basic sunglasses. You want no chemical in your eyes and very, very important, on your hands, you got to put your gloves on. Something that will keep the resin off your fingers because its caustic.
