Headlights are typically made of polycarbonate plastic, which can be affected by UV rays, environmental factors, and oxidation. This causes the headlights to become cloudy or yellowed over time.

Our restoration process is designed to provide long-lasting results. When headlights are restored by our team and receive proper maintenance, they can maintain their brand-new appearance for up to 4 years. Our restoration method, combined with regular care, ensures that your headlights stay clear, bright, and aesthetically pleasing for an extended period.

Headlight restoration is not a permanent solution, as headlights will eventually degrade over time due to environmental factors and UV exposure. However, regular maintenance and proper care can help prolong the results of the restoration.
