Eugene Headlight Restoration sands the lens using a multi-step process to completely remove the oxidation and physical damage. We then professionally polish the lens to restore optical clarity and apply a chemical clear coat sealant. Refinished lenses have a deep, wet gloss and protection from the elements.
More than likely, no. Only in a small percent of foggy headlights is the cloudy appearance coming from the inside the headlight itself. Oxidation is the likely culprite to the cloudy appearance of a headlight lens. In rare occurrences, however, condensation can build up on the inside of the lens cover. Rain and a broken or faulty headlight seal is mose likely the cause. The good news is that all headlights come with vent holes and when your headlights are on, they generate a lot of heat that evaporates the moisture through the vents.
You can certainly do that…and people can also choose to wash or detail their cars themselves. You will be the one doing the labor plus the cost of the kit, but just know that these kits must be used correctly for optimum results. If used carelessly, they can leave your lights severely scratched and looking even worse. We actually fix this type of damage often. Most kits are not effective in removing severe oxidation and scratches. The kits are a one-size-fits-all product, but the reality is…every headlight is different based on the manufacturer, type, and particular damage.
Eugene Headlight Restoration adjusts to each unique lens based on our knowledge, years of experience, what we see before restoring and what we see during the process. We have more tools and products than a generic kit and are adjust to each headlight accordingly. Additionally, many of the kits don’t provide a sealant to protect a refinished lens. The kits that do, use a really inferior sealant that wears off within months. Our process offers superior results and protection, and we guarantee it unlike the kits.
