Professional Headlight Restoration Service in Lathrop,CA
Drive with confidence when you have crystal clear headlights. Our headlight restoration service transforms yellowish to clear headlights.
The ultimate way to transform your foggy headlights to look brand new.
Headlights are one of the most important parts of your car. You literally can’t drive at night without them. When you have an 8-10 year old car, chances are your headlights will turn yellowish in color.
This yellowish color is caused by oxidation, UV rays, or a deteriorating clear coat. As time goes by, your headlights will show lesser and lesser amount of light. Thus, making it difficult for you to drive at night.
The three most common solutions to foggy headlights are: replacing it, buying a headlight restoration kit or doing it on your own.
The problem with replacing headlights is that it can be expensive. Also you must have the tools and experience to replace them, or else you have to pay for labor.
You can buy headlight restoration kits but you may not be sure which one to buy. With so many options out there, it can be daunting which one to get. Plus, you’re not sure if it will give you the result you’d hope for.
