Headlights fade and yellow due mostly to the UV rays of the sun. Headlights are coated with a UV protectant when they are made. Over time this coating breaks down and the lens loses clarity. Headlights are expensive to replace. You can buy cheap Ebay headlights but they are poor quality and usually not sealed properly and the UV coating on them is also poor. Factory headlights are the best option but they are really expensive. Restoring the headlights is a great idea because we can restore the clear coat back to new and ceramic coat them so they wont fade again.
Headlights fade because of the sun, oxidation, bugs, rock, and wind abrasion. If they are yellow or faded it may be because someone has sanded them too much removing not only the factory UV coating but also the lens clear coat. The result of this is that the headlights will continue to fade even if it is ceramic coated. The reason for this is that there is little or no more clear coat left. Clear coat on a headlight lens is a coating which is probably around 50-60 microns thick. As it is worn down, sanded, or buffed excessively then the coating will be too thin for any UV blockers or and ceramic coating to stop it from future fading.
The process for determining how to restore headlights is first to inspect them. We determine how much, if any clear coat is remaining. If there is enough clear coat we will lightly sand the oxidation and yellowing, polish them and then ceramic coat them. If the clear coat is thin or completely gone we will sand off as much remaining clear coat as possible and then add new clear coat that contains UV blockers, wait for them to cure, and then ceramic coat them.
Depending on how much restoration is needed determines how much it will cost. It is impossible to know how much this will cost until we see the headlights. We may need to wipe them off before we can properly see the lenses. We must see them in person in order to figure out how much restoration is needed. Regardless what is needed, restoring your headlights will cost less than new, factory headlights. Don't waste your money on Amazon or Ebay headlights-you are wasting your money if you do so.
