Headlight Restoration

RESTORATION OF FADED AND YELLOWING HEADLAMP LENSES


Hazy, foggy or yellowing headlamp lenses can spoil the look of your car, and reduce the light output from your headlamps. This service involves gently sanding the surface of the lens a number of times to remove the original factory finish UV coating. It is the UV coating that will have failed, producing the cloudy and cracked appearance on the surface of the headlight lens. 


Once the lens has been sanded so that it feels like velvet to the touch, a light to medium polish compound is machine buffed onto the surface of the lens to restore full clarity. 


The final process is to apply a new UV coating to the surface of the now restored lens. This is essential as it will greatly slow down any future oxidation of the lens bearing in mind the original factory supplied UV coating has been removed during the restoration process.
