Our 6 stage polishing system

for scrached,
cloudy & hazy

Some vehicles with sealed plastic headlight units do seem to suffer with the problem going cloudy or frosty, caused by washing, polution and the sun's UV radiation. This is unsightly but it is also reduces night-time visibility meaning that milky headlamps could cause your car to fail the MOT test. As a replacement headlight unit can cost anything from £100 to £700, refurbishing them is a much less painful solution.

Upgrade and only pay the difference

The depth of corrosion can be hard to judge, but don't worry, if the service you choose doesn't succeed you can upgrade to the next and you only pay the difference.

We have a system which consists of wet-sanding off the tarnished surface and then refinishing the plastic lens by machine polishing it to a high sheen. In addition we apply a coating of Supagard to provide protection from UV light and help to prevent future deterioration. The full 6 stage system can renew even them most cloudy lights, and for those that are not quite so hazy, we can polish them with just three stages.
