Headlight Restoration

Most cars and a lot of trucks today are manufactured with headlamp assemblies that use quartz-halogen bulbs plugged into the back of a large plastic reflector. The outer surface of these headlamp modules is molded polycarbonate plastic. That plastic is much lighter than glass and far more resistant to stone chips and cracks. However, after a few years of exposure to sunlight and atmospheric chemicals, polycarbonate has a tendency to get hazy. Severely neglected lenses can actually pit and develop a network of fine cracks, called craze, which makes the job of fixing them tougher. Sure, these assemblies are easy to replace, but they can be very expensive. A pair of lenses for a luxury car can cost as much as thousands of rupees. Fortunately, there’s a simple and inexpensive solution. Headlight restoration is the simplest method to retain the headlights in good condition. Unlike glass, the polycarbonate plastic can be polished back to a surface as smooth as new, in a procedure that won’t take more than a half-hour.

How it Works

Remove oxidized parts of your headlight lens and then work your way back to a smooth surface. Using a hand drill, rated between 1,200 and 1,600 rpm, start with the 500-grit sanding disc to remove yellowing and pitting. Wipe the headlight down and check that the surface is evenly frosted. Using the foam buffing pad and a dime-size spot of rubbing compound will really improve clarity. Apply the polish to the foam pad, then rub it over the headlight lens before turning on the drill. This will help to prevent spattering polishing compound all over the place when you want to be rubbing it into the headlight.
