Are your headlight lenses hazy and discolored? This is an unavoidable condition that results as your car is exposed to heat from the light bulbs and sun, dirt, bugs, road salt, etc. At first glance, this cosmetic issue can cause your vehicle to look older and more worn. However, these cloudy lenses are also a performance issue as they dull the visibility from your headlights. Tests have shown that your headlights can become 50% less efficient as this situation worsens. Continue reading to see how Archer’s Action Auto can help with poor car lighting.
To replace the lens, you must purchase the entire headlight assembly which can cost several hundred dollars apiece. Archer’s Action Auto of Myrtle Beach is now featuring the increasingly popular Headlight Restoration Service as an alternative. This is a 5 step process which removes the cloudiness and yellowish discoloration, then seals and protects the new finish from future damage.
The service begins by sanding the lens with gradually finer grits of sandpaper to remove the hazy, oxidized outer layer of laminate. Once this is removed, our technician buffs the lens to smooth any imperfections from the sanding process. Afterwards, we apply a resin to the refinished surface which provides a protective coating. This seals the lens surface to combat future cloudiness. Lastly, the lens is re-buffed to smooth out the new coating and provide a finish that truly appears ‘like new’.
This Headlight Restoration Service is shown to restore headlight efficiency to 90% of original factory performance. In addition, it really gives your vehicle a whole new look.
We also install & replace headlights, taillights, brake lights, signal lights, flashers as well as all cabin lighting.
