Everything you need to know about Headlight Restorations

Headlight Restorations, tail light repairs & car light replacements are rarely repaired and usually an afterthought. Unless of course the headlight or tail light has been smashed in which case it needs to be replaced ASAP as your car is no longer roadworthy and you may also be fined if pulled over.

Headlight Restorations are a common part of the long term maintenance of your car. Prolonged weather exposure and UV radiation from the sun causes the headlight or tail light covering to dull, become discoloured, and erode. Modern headlights and tail lights are made from polycarbonate which is ideal for letting light pass through but is sensitive to scratching and chipping. For this reason, stone chips are common are often the cause of dulling, warranting the requirement of Headlight Restorations. When headlamp or tail light dulling gets very bad it starts affecting the safety of your vehicle and aesthetically makes your car look bad. When headlamp and tail light dulling starts to occur it’s common for people to seek headlamp restoration or repairs and replacement.

How to know when Headlight Restorations are needed? If you wash your headlamps and tail lights with a cloth and you notice that internal condensation or the dullness won’t go away it probably means the top coating of the light has been damaged. Polishing or buffing might work to help restore it, but if the dulling has spread all over the light cover it's probably time for some Headlight Restorations. Continuous buffing will likely make the dulling worse in the long run as the outer protective coating will be removed. DingGo panel beaters will assess if Headlight Restorations are possible, if a new UV protectant clear coat can be applied to give long term protection or if instead it's more economical to just replace the headlamp or tail light for you.
