Headlight Restoration

 

Like many car owners you've probably thought about why your headlights don't look clear anymore, or why they don't seem to be giving off as much light while driving at night. Maybe you've noticed the difference in the way your car looks now as opposed to when you first bought it. Or maybe you've picked up on the aesthetic comparison of cars just like yours, but with clear new looking headlights. It's pretty noticeable. Don't try to clean headlights or buy new headlamps, having your headlights refinished to look brand new is considered one of the #1 ways to improve the value of your vehicle and its looks.

There are a number of things that cause headlights to lose their intensity. Weather, insects, and road debris all contribute to reduced clarity of your headlights. Their effects can easily be seen with the naked eye when the headlights appear cloudy or foggy. Rather than having to replace them, we use special solvents to remove oxidation and buildup, then apply a UV protector that will help keep your headlights shining brighter for longer.

Plastic components can yellow and haze with weather, sun and sand, limiting visibility and diminishing the appearance and value of your vehicle. While the impact on a vehicle's value varies, the dangers in terms of limited visibility are clear: It is a factor in 2.8 million accidents, 23,000 fatal crashes and 2,300 pedestrian deaths each year, according to the Motor Vehicle Lighting Council.

In the past, replacing scratched, clouded or yellowed plastic headlight covers was an expensive necessity in order to preserve safety and avoid failing your inspection. With our restoration service, car and motorcycle owners can shine and restore plastic lenses -- including headlights, tail lights, fog and directional lights -- to like-new condition for a fraction of the cost.

Clean headlights using our headlight restoration process includes applying automotive clear coat paint to the headlight lens, restoring the UV protection that is lost over time and causes the yellowing of the lens.

Our restoration process utilizes graded sanding, buffing, and fine polishing. Our experienced technicians will carefully revitalize the plastic from clouding and hazing without damaging or weakening the integrity of the lenses or damaging any surrounding body panels and paint.
