Headlight Restoration Process
PREP & CLEAN
The headlight refinishing process starts with taping and masking the areas around your headlights to protect your vehicles paint & trim. This first step also includes cleaning & prepping your headlights to ensure quality during our next step.
This step is one of the key ingredients to the success of a good headlight restoration. Be wary of sources and products that claim to restore your headlights without this step, as sanding away the dead oxidized layer is a must before even polishing or sealing polycarbonate headlights to achieve maximum clarity and long lasting results.
After we’ve wet-sanded your headlights to remove the oxidized layer and minor scratches, we polish your lights through a series of polishing steps to remove the previous sanding marks created during the wetsanding phase and to restore a brand new finish.
When your headlights have been sanded & polished properly they should look pretty brand new and almost certainly 10X better than they did before. This is where the majority of the few who get to this stage end the headlight restoration process. This is also why their headlight restoration services do not work beyond 3 months to a year because they have not properly sealed your headlights to prevent the issue from happening again. And no . . . carnauba waxes and sealants don’t cut it this time.
