Ultimate Headlight Restoration in Richmond VA
Save a ton of money by restoring your headlights and not having to completely replace them
The main goal for this service is to drastically increase your ability to drive at night.
We tend to forget how much of a difference it will make on your car’s lights if they were cleared and didn’t have a haze or yellowish look keeping the lights from actually shining through.
Getting your headlights has three main benefits!
Safety/ If you have oxidation laying on top of your lights, chances are that it can decrease your visibility at night. Once the oxidation is fully removed and stripped clean your light beams will be brighter than ever before.
Appearance/ The most exciting transformation will happen right in front of your eyes once we’ve fully restored your headlights back to like new conditions.
Upgrade lighting/ Believe it or not, most times lights go bad after 6 months of use. Turning them on and off usually tends to give them such a short life span.
We recommend you consider upgrading your car's light with all of our options, from LEDS, and HID’s your car will truly look a lot different with such a small add on.
The way we are going to accomplish a clean look on the headlights of your vehicle is by using a method called Wet Sanding.
Wet sanding in this case, is fairly safe and often the go-to when it comes to restoring headlights. You can easily come across tons of restoration kits at any local auto parts stores nowadays.
Maybe you aren’t too confident in your abilities and are scared to completely damage your lights leading you to Amazon prime ordering a brand new replacement which we know can be costly. (Depending the type of vehicle of course)
There’s nothing to worry about, our best advice is to always keep the section you are working in wet/moist conditions so no scratches are made.
With way too many methods out there, restoring your headlights is fairly simple and we like to keep things that way.

FAQ: Headlight Restoration
Can you restore ALL headlights?
Just like with many other things on your vehicle, once the headlights reach a certain point fully restoring and bringing back that brand new like may not be possible. Permanent damage may hinder the results, however you will definitely be able to tell a difference once we are finished with our restoration methods.
How Do my headlights get so Ugly?
Your headlights have a thin clear coat, just like your car's paint would. Year after year, month after month as the sun beats up that clear coat it begins to fail overtime creating that yellowish, foggy look.
How can I keep up with my headlight to keep them looking good?
Ideally adding a protective sealant or wax every 4-5 week can help increase the longevity of your car's headlights, especially against the Hot Richmond weather in the summer months. (Assuming they look like-new)
How long does this take?
Usually, this will take about an hour to properly and safely do. We try not to rush the process ensuring you get the results you are paying for. We take time to also tape up all areas around the headlights to limit the risk of any damage being made to your car.
Do you come to me or do I have to drop it off?
Ideally for a small job such as this one we could easily get it done at your home, or work place without any problems. However we highly suggest you pair this with a WASH to fully take advantage of a full exterior transformation.
