Is Headlight Restoration a permanent solution to the problem?
-There is no product or service available that can provide a “permanent” solution to the eventual re-occurrence of the lens becoming discolored or hazy. Headlight Fixer Headlight Restoration service provides the longest lasting clarity available today. We use the highest quality materials specifically designed for polycarbonate headlight restoration.
Do you use “clear coat paint” to seal the lenses?
–No! We only use products that are specifically designed for headlight restoration. We use a polycarbonate sealant that is safe for all vehicles and will not harm or cause permanent damage to the lens. Many auto detailer’s and auto shops use the “clear coat paint” method. Clear coat paint is not intended to seal plastic headlight lenses, over time the clear coat will yellow, and restoring them will not be an option.
How long does the restoration process take?
-Most restorations are complete within about 1.5 hour; the amount of time varies depending upon the extent of the damage to the headlight lens. Severely damaged lenses may take additional time.
How Do I book an appointment?
-It is real simple. Our appointment times and days are listed on our booking page. Select your time and day then just pay the $50 appointment deposit. Once we complete the service you will pay the balance by credit card on our mobile payment application with the specialist who completed the job.
Will you come to my home or work?
-Yes, we are a mobile service serving Tampa/St. Petersburg metro area. We will come to a location that is convenient to you.
After restoration, how long do I have to wait before I can drive my vehicle?
-You will be able to drive your vehicle 5 minutes after the last stage of restoration is complete. (Note, vehicle is drivable 5 minutes after restoration with no negative results; total curing of lenses are achieved after 24 hours.)
After restoration, what happens if my headlights get wet?
-Your headlight lenses should not be exposed to rain, snow or any form of moisture during or within 15 minutes of restoration. In the event the restored headlight lenses become exposed to moisture after the 15 minute time period, a temporary “hazing” may occur during the first 24 hours. This “hazing” is normal and will disappear after the lens surface has dried and curing is complete. Please allow 24 hours for lenses to fully cure before washing vehicle. We closely monitor weather conditions to ensure optimal results of your headlight restoration.
