Not to hijack this thread, as this is somewhat related, but for "star" cracks from a rock impact.... has anyone tried using a windshield crack repair kit to fill this and reduce their visibility or future growth?

A very small hole drilled at the end of each radial crack will halt progression.
Permatex makes a radiator recovery tank repair kit that is great in patching all kinds of things. It does get quite warm when you add the catalyst, but not enough to damage the thin plastic.

That Permatex kit is designed to work with a fiberglass cloth. I was looking to retain the optical clarity of the plastic. Thanks anyway.
