I just got my windshield repaired. I couldn't believe how much of the crack has "disappeared;" they obviously did a good job. Hope it lasts.
Which brings me to my question--after finding out that the business that was to do it, would take a couple of days to do the job, I expressed concern that the crack might grow beyond the quarter size during that time. The guy on the other end said that I should crack the windows and try to park indoors if I could, to minimize the heat, which was what made cracks expand.
Was that good advice? More to the point, would taking extra precautions (like trying to park in shade) do anything for my chances of keeping this crack contained? Or is it simply a matter of, if the repair job was good, that should take care of the crack, and I don't have anything to worry about? I live in a desert region, where for several months a year, cars parked outside can attract lots of heat.
