Why Headlights Need Refinishing

What causes headlights to become cloudy and dim?

  • Polycarbonate plastic headlights yellow quickly and scratch easily.
  • Factory protective headlight coating deteriorates after years of exposure to intense sunshine and UV rays.
  • The unprotected polycarbonate plastic then yellows and blocks the amount of light they produce.
  • Road grit eventually pits the headlight surface lowering light output and further damages the UV coating. This damaged light surface reduces the light intensity by up to 70%.

Our headlight restoration service will make your yellow headlights look as good as new at a much lower cost than new replacement headlights.
