What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You!

I noticed today that a friend’s pickup has really fogged up headlights. When I mentioned it, she had no idea what I was talking about, and assumed I meant they were just dirty.

Once I showed her what headlights are supposed to look like, it made more sense, and I’ll be fixing them this week for her by doing a headlight restoration to remove the oxidation and get them shined up.

Foggy/Yellow headlights are more than just an eye sore. They are a potentially dangerous situation that can drastically reduce visibility at night, especially here in Montana in rural areas. You need the maximum amount of light coming from your headlights to make sure you don’t end up with a deer-shaped hood ornament.

Uncorrected headlights that are foggy and yellow can block as much as 80% of the light that is supposed to be coming from them. You wouldn’t take a brand new car and duct tape 80% of the headlight off, right? It would be really dangerous. Driving with foggy headlights has the same effect.

This is a picture of a headlight, before and after restoration. The before picture is actually clean, despite the surrounding area.

Headlight Restoration Before and After

So, what should you do? If you’re so inclined, there are a variety of DIY headlight restoration kits out there that you can try for about $30-40. These may or may not be effective, depending on the severity of the damage, your tools and skill set, and the quality of the kit. Optionally, you can have them professionally restored. If you’re reading this from my service area, give me a call and we can make an appointment to get yours corrected. I charge $60 to do the work. If you’re not in my area, doing a search for “headlight restoration” in your area will lead you to a qualified company.

Don’t wait, check your headlights and if they need it, get them corrected as soon as possible.

While I do recommend that my customers have their cars detailed regularly (by yours truly, of course,) I realize that some people are just more DIY. That’s cool, I’m that way myself. Why not get the right tools for the job so you can do the best job you can and protect your investment? It may cost a couple of extra bucks than the Made-in-China stuff you can pick up at the local store, but trust me, the results are impressive, and with the guarantee, there’s nothing to lose. Plus, since I’m local and mobile, you can save the hassle of shipping, and see the products before you buy.

So, take a look at the product selection I’m offering. I’m not currently carrying every single item they sell, but sticking with the most popular products at first. If there are products you’d like to order, just contact me, and I can get them for you quickly.
