Sophisticated techniques are available in North America for
repairing chipped, cracked, and scratched automobile windshields.
Repairs can be done by service providers, or by anyone using
ready-to-use kits.

If the materials in these kits (epoxy resins, I think) are not
adequate for any reason, at least the methods used in their
application might be useful.
