Headlight Resurface

Restoring Clarity

Yellow or Dull Headlights?

The covering on your lenses breaks down over time (from UV light) becoming yellowed and dull, significantly diminishing the distance your headlights can throw a visible beam.

To achieve a long-lasting, resilient finish, you need to remove the old faded coating and replace it with a new UV protective gel film. To provide a durable finish we:

  • Completely remove the old dull finish.
  • Apply a new patented UV rated clear coating that protects the lenses and restores gloss.
What Cars Can Be Done?

Any modern vehicle with plastic headlights, where the coating has yellowed from UV damage. We can not repair deep pitting holes from stone chips in plastic lenses.

How Long Does It Last?

Our repairs use high-grade automotive resurfacing coatings. Under normal use conditions, our repairs will last 2-4 years.

*As with any product, an element of user care is expected. It’s important to correctly clean and dry the vehicle.

Which Process

Our Restoration Process

Our three-stage process covers cleaning the headlight surface, removing any yellowed dull UV damaged coating and plastic. Through to thoroughly preparing the headlights for taking on the new UV rated protected finish.

What’s more, our process ensures that you will be up to code for NZTA Warrant Of Fitness inspection. Under the ‘Summary of Legislation’ section “21. The dipped-beam headlamps must illuminate the road ahead for 50m in normal darkness”More Info 

Step One

Prepare and protect the vehicle. Remove dirt etc from the front end of the vehicle. Tape and protect areas around the lights.

Step Two

Sand back the yellowed failed headlight coating. Revealing a fresh new layer. Prepare the fresh headlight surface for the new coat. This is the longest part of the process as it can require multiple passes to achieve the desired level of surface preparation.

Step Three

Bring the lenses back to a clear condition for application of a new UV rated coating. Nicely lifting the look and feel of the front end of the vehicle.

Not all headlight repairs are the same. Some will only cut and polish the headlights – but we fully resurface with a new UV coating.

Key Points

Prevent headlights from yellowing, restore the distance your headlight beam travels. Increase night driving safety.

Headlight Repair

Buff Or Resurface?

While it might be tempting just to cut and polish headlights. The risk of ‘burn-though’ from overheating the plastic surface is significant. Once headlight plastic has burned through, there is no repairing it.

In contrast, wet sanding and removing the UV damaged coating from the lens surface will open up the plastic to receive a new UV rated layer designed to last 2-4 years with proper care.
