Identify the damage

Types include:

Chip: A simple divot without any radiating cracks.
Bull’s eye: Essentially, a divot with a small crater around it.
Spider: A divot or bull’s eye with small cracks radiating outward.
Crack: A long thin split that may include a visible chip that started it.

In general, repairs for chips, bull’s eyes and spiders are the same, while cracks require a slightly different approach.
The damage I repaired was a spider chip, but the steps are similar to most other chips and crack repair kits. Modify as needed for your specific damage or kit.
The painter’s tape on the inside of the windshield is there for photographic clarity. You don’t need that tape on your own repair.
