What Is Headlight Restoration?
In years past, headlights were made of glass. This limited car manufactures to certain sizes and shapes. Once technology advanced, it allowed automakers to use polycarbonate to create headlight lenses. Polycarbonates gave manufacturers many advantages to changing the shape and size of headlights but the major drawback is that over time oxidation changes the physical surface of the headlight lens. New headlights have a UV resistant coating applied by the manufacturer. This helps protect the lens against oxidation. After years of exposure to the elements, the coating breaks down. Professional Headlight restorations remove this oxidation by sanding, polishing, and re-applying a protective UV coating. Restoring your headlights to their original clarity improves the vehicles appearance and more importantly increases night vision while driving.

Benefits of Headlight Restoration:
The concept of going green is spreading across the world with industries and consumers opting for green alternatives more than ever before.
