Life Expectancy

Headlight Restoration

Restore headlights for safety and clarity

Yellowed, faded and dull headlights are not only illegal but they are also a safety risk to you and your family. In addition, they dramatically affect the look of your vehicle. Bright clear lights give any vehicle an instant facelift.

Our full UV protection rated restoration processes provide for a safe clear lighted roadway ahead of you. So that you can see and be seen. Our process of restoring headlights includes removing the UV damaged layer of outer coating (it’s on the outside, not the inside like sometimes thought) and plastics to expose a fresh layer on which we apply a UV rated ceramic coating to protect for a minimum of 2 years. Price Range: $90 – $140. (MORE)…

UV Damage

More Info

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

More Info

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

More Info

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.

Warranty

More Info

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.

What Types Of Repairs Can Be Done?

The Final Touch Small Area Repair Technology (SMART) repair process can deal with just about any car paint defect. The Final Touch process specialises in repairing stone chips. 

  1. Clean back the chip
  2. Colour match the paint
  3. Spray Paint into the chip
  4. Allow the paint to dry
  5. Remove excess paint with unique Formula 184 

Other areas where the Final Touch technicians excel is in paint reconditioning; Full cut polish and clarity refinement that gives a full mirror finish.

  • Water Spot Removal
  • Corrective Cut Polish Clarity Refine
  • Paint Protection
  • Interior Protection
  • Interior Exterior Grooming and Detailing
What Brands & Equipment Do We Use?

Final Touch uses the best products from suppliers around the world including Meguiar’s and Rupe’s. When Combined these brands provide exceptionally high levels of paint correction while protecting & preserving the clear coat. It’s important to note that many ‘groomers’ still use the older rotary style machines which can more easily burn the clear coat and leave holograms and swirls etched into the paint surface. 

In contrast, you will find that the Final Touch technicians are right up with the play on international detailing standards. What’s more, the Final Touch technicians have their very own edge on the stone chip repair market, with our own unique and patented spray and wipe stone chip repair process, proudly developed right here in New Zealand and used around the world. 

Tips & Tricks For Maintaining That Shine

When cleaning a vehicle try to remove the heavier dirt with a higher pressure wash. Follow this with a good emulsifying cleaner that releases the dirt from the paint surface, minimising scratching. Wash from the top down, cleaning the wheels last with a specific brush. Always dry the vehicle with a microfibre towel 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. Contact us for more information on some of the great new polishes and waxes available. 

Often forgotten until it's really bad. Caring for your vehicle's glass is just as important for the long term value and overall feeling of ownership, as well as being able to see clearly when you're driving. If your glass has got water spots on it, it's highly possible we may be able to remove them. Please contact us to discuss the options.
