Headlight restoration or plastic headlight restoration is the act of restoring aged headlight lenses that have become discolored or dull due the original factory UV protective coating degrading primarily due to UV light and other environmental factors such as road debris impact (stones, sand, etc.) rain, and exposure to caustic chemicals. Over time the factory protective hardcoat breaks down with UV degradation and wear from abrasion, etc. If left untreated the polycarbonate lens will eventually develop small surface cracks, a condition referred to as crazing. Also, the polycarbonate lens will eventually discolor through the thickness of the lens, The effectiveness of the headlight in terms of light output measured in lux can be significantly reduced. This condition which results in hazy and discolored lenses is known for causing reduced night time visibility for drivers as the condition becomes worse. It is possible for cloudy and hazy headlights to be restored to a like-new condition and represents typically a far more economical alternative than replacing the lens.


We have a proprietary ten-step process we do to restore your headlights. We tape around the edges of your headlights to protect the painted surfaces. Then to start our process, we sand off the yellow oxidization and rough areas of the lens with a lubricant and very fine sandpaper, and then perform a proprietary buffing and sealing process to bring back the original clear look. In just 1-2 hours, your headlights will look like new, saving you the costs of a full replacement and install and possibly the expenses and injuries associated with accidents caused by poor forward lighting. We guarantee the results of this service for up to two years.
