To get started, you’ll need a flat, yellow square, paper towels, a safety razor, scissors, a syringe, resin, a pedestal, a sticky tab, a pin, a cloth, and some rubbing alcohol.

These items can all be purchased separately or you can purchase a windshield repair kit (Chris showcases his specific recommendation in the video!).
