Headlight restoration by definition is the act of refinishing aged headlight lenses that have become discolored or dull due to oxidation primarily due to UV light and other environmental factors such as road debris impact, rain, and exposure to caustic chemicals. Over time the lenses wear and if untreated properly, the headlights overtime will develop small cracks and the headlights also lose visibility when driving at night caused by the headlights fogging. However, the lenses can be treated and cleaned as new, with a little bit of work.
There are two ways you can fix your lenses:
- You can purchase the products specifically for headlights at any detail store or Walmart. These products are primarily for quick fixes and anyone can use them. The downside to these products is that they do not produce the best results and the headlights are only cleaned for a few weeks, if not days.
- The second way you can fix your headlights is the professional way. The items needed to fully restore your headlights are: buffer/polishing machine, sandpaper, buffing compound, polishing compound, headlight UV protection and water or a lubricating solution. By sanding and buffing, you will remove the yellowing from the lenses and once you’ve finished buffing and polishing the lenses don’t forget to protect the headlights with your UV protection product.
Prices Range from $40-$60
