Our headlight restoration procedure gets right to the bottom of things, so to speak. Headlight abrasion is caused by gravel, sand, salt and other road debris. These sand down, chip and scratch the protective UV coating on the plastic lens, and often damaging the plastic lens itself. Initially this results in a white, milky haze on your headlight. Over time, the lens will oxidize and start to turn yellow. This yellow film can easily be removed using toothpaste or some other abrasive cream sold by many automotive product retailers, like Canadian Tire.
However, this “toothpaste fix” alone will not resolve the issue. It will not return the lens to a crystal clear finish. The only way to fix the problem properly is with wet sanding. Wet sanding will remove all surface abrasions and reduce the chips and heavy scratches. After this stage. we follow it up with a cut and polish compound. The cut and polish stage removes all the sanding marks, returning the headlight lens back to a crystal clear finish.
We strongly recommend adding a UV protection coating to the lens after completion of the Headlight Restoration Service.
