Headlight restoration Antioch
Are your headlights cloudy and yellow-looking? Is driving at night a little hard lately? The headlights on your car, truck or SUV may be in need of a headlight restoration.
Why Do Headlights Get Foggy & Yellow?
The headlights on most vehicles in the last 20 years or so are mostly made of plastic and are no longer made from glass. The benefits of this are you can replace just a light bulb and not have to replace the whole headlight. The down side is the plastic lens can get foggy, hazy, and yellow over time. This foggy and yellow look comes from the UV rays of the sun and over time it takes a beating on your lights. The plastic lens on your headlights has a clearcoat similar to the clearcoat on the painted surface of your vehicle. This clearcoat needs to be protected much like your paint and if that does not happen you will get a breakdown of that clearcoat which leads to the foggy look that you may see. If you live in sunny California and in the Antioch, Oakley, Sandhill, and Arbor area your car is prone to get this type of damage.
