Tech Tip – Headlight Lens Refinishing
– Save Money And See Better –
How many of you get in your car that’s a few years older now and find that your headlights are no longer shining like they used to? More and more cars have gone from glass headlight housings to plastic ones for cheaper production costs and weight reduction.
One side affect we see more with lights of this type is heavy pitting and discoloration from the natural elements we face on our daily commutes. In just a few years the once clear surface can become cloudy and opaque, resulting in not only a cosmetic issues, but also a safety one – less light on the road at night.
Before jumping into a repair that may be more costly than necessary, we like to offer our customers a far more cost effective solution to restore both the look and performance of the lights their car once had when it first rolled off the assembly line.
As you can see in this comparison photo on these Volvo XC90 lenses, the damage was actually far worse than the image portrays, but even so they were able to be brought back to a great condition.
By using multiple stages of sanding, wet sanding, and buffing, we’re able to remove the outer layers that may be pitted, contaminated, or discolored from the sun, ultimately restoring your headlights to the original manufacturers specifications, be it an Audi, BMW, Honda, Lexus, Mercedes, Mini Cooper, Volvo, or Volkswagen.
Feel free to call or stop by find out more on how we can help you get your car back to the condition you both deserve! Just call (207) 882-9969.
