Keep headlights in good shape for winter driving safety
Does it seem particularly dark driving home from work these days? Good visibility is extremely important when driving at night. We may be able to see other cars with brake and running lights, but what about that deer that suddenly crosses the road? Visibility is significantly diminished when one of your headlights is burned out or if your headlights lenses are dull, cloudy, and scratched.
Check to make sure both of your headlights are operational and, if not, have the bulb(s) replaced immediately. However, if the problem is the headlight lenses, those can be restored and made to look new again! Headlight lenses are made from a poly-carbonate material that can get scratched from sunlight, sand, and harsh chemicals on the roadway. Gravel roads take a particularly hard toll on the lenses!
If you have any of these signs of oxidation, heavy scratches, and cloudiness on your headlight lenses, it’s time for a headlight restoration and polish service.
Honest Accurate Auto Service provides headlight restoration and polish for all Asian, Domestic, and European vehicles. Yes, trucks need headlight restorations too! We have a 6-step process in our headlight restoration and polish service that cleans and refinishes the lens surface. The process takes an hour and includes:
- taping around the lens to protect your vehicle paint while cleaning the lens
- applying progressively fine, mild abrasives
- finishing with a fine polishing compound, applied with an orbital buffer
The materials used bring the luster back to the lens, making it look shiny and bright again.
