Which adhesive do you use?

Adhesives ensure that the windscreen does not shift from its original position. Poor quality adhesives increase the risk of windshield disassembling. Make sure that the company used Urethane adhesive.
How soon can you drive?
In this fast-paced world, we hardly have time to wait. But while trying to make use of every minute, we choose to ignore the dangers.

If you are willing to spend enough time for the replacement process, you should make sure that all your efforts do not go into vain and if it does then at least the service provider should take full responsibility.
