Headlight Restoration

The process for headlight restoration on a vehicle typically involves the following steps:

  1. Clean the headlights: Begin by thoroughly cleaning the headlights with soap and water, and then drying them with a clean towel. This step removes any dirt, grime, or debris on the surface of the headlights.

  2. Mask surrounding areas: Mask off the surrounding areas of the headlights with painter's tape to avoid damaging the paint or other surfaces.

  3. Sand the headlights: Use sandpaper to sand the surface of the headlights. Start with a coarser grit (around 1200) and gradually work your way up to a finer grit (around 3000), ensuring that you sand evenly across the entire surface of the headlight.

  4. Apply headlight restoration compound: Apply a headlight restoration compound to the surface of the headlight. This compound is designed to remove any remaining scratches or haziness from the surface of the headlight.

  5. Polish the headlights: Once the headlight restoration compound has been applied and allowed to dry, use a polishing cloth or buffer to buff the surface of the headlight until it is smooth and clear.

  6. Apply a protective coating: Finally, apply a protective coating to the surface of the headlight to protect it from future damage and to help maintain its clarity and shine.

 

It's important to note that the exact process for headlight restoration may vary depending on the type of headlight and the severity of the damage.
