Headlight Restoration Story: A while ago, I decided to buy a project car. It was a 2001 silver Honda Civic. The car wasn’t in very good shape. Not only it had fading paint but also foggy and cracked headlights. Without delay, I started fixing all its problems, but when I got to the headlights, I was disappointed to find out, they could not be restored. Especially, the headlights since I have done it for many clients before. Headlights will impact tremendously how your car looks, you can prevent them from going bad, and most of the times they can be restored by a professional.

Headlights Can Make your Vehicle Look Good or Bad

Headlights are one of the most important cosmetic features of your car. If you have had your headlights foggy for a while you will be surprise that, by restoring them, your car will look about ten times better.

There are ways you can avoid your headlights to need headlight restoration. Properly washing your car at least every two weeks will prevent your headlights to go bad. However, if you do not know how to properly clean your car, have a professional do it. Often, techniques and things you use to clean your car is what makes the car components go bad. Also, do not go to a cheap car wash, or a DIY car place and use their dirty brushes, for you will have consequences like damaged headlights and scratched paint.
