Headlight Restoration

Headlight Restoration

Are your headlights looking dull and yellowed? Is it becoming hard to see the road while you’re driving at night? Your headlights probably need a restoration, which is nothing more than a quick clean and polish to make sure those headlights are keeping the road lit and you safe. 

What is a headlight restoration?

Faded headlights are caused by the oxidation of the surface of the outer cover of the headlight, and this can cause a serious degradation in the effectiveness of the light itself.

Driving at night or in bad weather conditions with ineffective headlights could pose a safety concern. If your headlights are looking a bit worse for wear, you probably need a headlight restoration, which will remove the oxidised material to a smooth and polished finish with our Headlight Restoration Service.

The results will restore dull, yellowed headlights to like-new clarity and improve lens appearance and visibility for safer driving.

After a restoration, your headlights will look good as new.

Why do you need a headlight restoration?

Driving with faded headlights can severely impact the effectiveness of the light, and therefore pose a safety concern. It’s important that your lights work to the best of their ability so that you can see properly on the road when you are driving in different conditions. 

How do I know if I need a headlight restoration?

You may need your headlights restored if:

  • You’re having trouble seeing the road at night.
  • Your headlights are yellowing.
  • Your headlights look cloudy.

How are headlights restored?

Headlights are restored through a multi-stage process that focuses on removing deep discolouration and scratches to restore the lens to a new condition and add a protective layer to ensure longevity of the restored surface. 

How much does a headlight restoration cost?

A headlight restoration can cost between $50 to $120 to restore the set of two headlights. 

How often do I need a headlight restoration?

It’s always good to get a headlight restoration when your headlights are looking dull and faded. While there’s no timeline for when this may happen, older cars tend to face dulled headlights more often.
