This exposes a fresh layer of clear coat to work with. Clearly, this activity is only recommended for those trained and experienced in the processes involved.

Ceramic Paint Coatings
Paint, leather and fabric protection are very effective at protecting the long term value and look of your vehicle. However, there are only a few products which will do the miles. Dura-Seal G4 and Optimum OptiCoat Pro & Plus ceramic coatings provide excellent lasting UV protection. Modern ceramic coatings provide a hardened layer to exterior paints, plastics, wheels, and glass. The coatings help to repel environmental contaminants while improving the shine and reflective quality of the paint finish. Price Range: $450 – $850. (MORE)…
Who Are They For
Ceramic coatings are good for people who are short on time, but big on car care. Providing a long-lasting alternative waxing and polishing routines. Dramatically cutting back washing and drying time. With no need to apply waxes after washing.
The life expectancy of ceramic paint coatings caries from brand to brand and the environment in which they are used. Like any product, some care is required. Regular washing and drying of the paintwork, limited exposure to chemicals etc. On average ceramic paint, coatings can be expected to last between 3-5 years with correct care. This can be extended with a Final Touch paint maintenance package.

Over time modern plastic headlight lenses become yellowed and faded through car wash chemicals and sunlight UV damage. The degree of damage can vary from light surface clarity issues to full yellowing and a significantly limited throw distance of the lenses.
Equipment We Use
We use modern wet sanding, hand and machine techniques to fully remove UV damaged coatings and light scratches from the headlight lenses. While protecting the integrity of the plastics. We follow this process with the application of a new UV rated headlight lenses coating.
Wet Sanding or Buffing
While you may be tempted to just get a buffing machine and attempt to cut back the damaged lenses coating, consider those plastics heat up very quickly. This process of high heat often leads to ‘burning’ of the plastic lenses. This is why we wet sand the surface to remove all traces of the UV damage. Then bring the surface up to a level where the application of the new coating will form a lasting bond.
Your reconditioned headlight lenses come with an operator application warranty. This warranty covers; that applicator has correctly prepared the lenses by fully removing the damaged coating and applied a new UV rated coating to a high standard of clarity.

Tip & Tricks For Maintaining That Shine
When cleaning a vehicle try to remove the heavier dirt items with a higher pressure wash. Follow this with a good emulsifying cleaner that releases the dirt from the paint surface. Minimising scratching. Wash top down, cleaning the wheels last with a specific brush. Always dry the vehicle back and never wash hot paint, as this risks etching in water spots. For a deeper clean consider clay baring the paint surface.
Our recommendation is to use a high-quality sealant like DurSeal or OptiCoat Pro, to minimise the need for polishing and waxing. However, when polishing or waxing, ensure the paint surface is cool and the vehicle is away from direct sunlight. Apply in uniform motion following manufacturers directions.
Often forgotten until it's really bad. Care of your vehicle glass is important for the long term value and overall feeling of ownership. If your glass has got water spots on it, it's possible we may be able to remove them. However, some glass is quite soft and very easily etched by water spots.
