Why Your Headlights Lose Their Shine
Your car’s headlights are made from Polycarbonate, a type of very tough plastic, that makes them ideal for deflecting stones. However, they are not so good at protecting themselves from the suns harsh UV rays so with continual exposure, they discolour. Car makers do their best to slow this process down by applying a UV protective Hard Coat, as they do to the paintwork on your car.
Whilst this does delay the degrading process it doesn’t stop it, which is why you see so many cars out there with cloudy headlights
The Good News: We can restore your headlights to their former glory.
Like most jobs the key is in the preparation. So, the first step is to completely remove the old Clear Coat. This involves masking up the vehicle followed by buffing, or clay barring (this depends on the extent of the degradation) to ensure we remove all of the residual coating from the surface of the light.
Once we have completed this process we apply a UV protectant to the light to afford greater protection against the sun and to ensure they give you the highest level of visibility.
