How to restore your headlights
Over time headlights lenses can become dull and discoloured. This affects the ability for light to beam through and becomes a major safety issue when driving at night.
It not only leaves the driver with poor vision of the road ahead but also makes the vehicle become harder for other vehicles to see especially in bad weather.
Vision of the road and the sides of the road is essential when driving especially in remote and country roads where wildlife is on the roadside and crossing at night.
There is no need to pay for a full replacement of the headlight lens. There are kits that can be purchased to restore the headlights and the results can be dramatic.
The kit will include:
- Lens polish
- Buffing pad
- Sanding pad
- UV protection
The kit will include full instructions on how to complete the repair.
The most important thing to remember is to make sure that the vehicle is kept out of the rain for the set period of time stated on the instructions. Applying a UV Protection will ensure your efforts will not be ruined.
