It used to be that the automotive headlight was a large glass light bulb that would need to be replaced if the light burned out, was cracked, or otherwise damaged. Now, headlights are clear plastic cases that surround small, high-intensity light bulbs. The light bulbs are easily replaced in the event of a burn out, but the plastic housing continues to age and weather as a result of constant exposure over the life of the car. Often, headlights become hazed, cracked, or yellowed as a result of constant exposure to the elements. Automotive Quality Solutions can restore cloudy, hazy, or yellowed headlight lenses to like-new condition by removing the factory finish coating with a new UV resistant clear coat. Headlights will look new – adding value and making your car safer and more enjoyable to drive.

What Make AQS Different?

Our process. At AQS we are constantly evolving our processes to attain peak results. We’re simply not happy with sub par results – and we’ll do something over if it isn’t exactly right. When it comes to headlight restoration, we take each faded headlight through a time intensive process of sanding with progressively finer sand paper to remove the pitting and scratching that causes the headlight fading. We then coat the repaired lens with a UV protectant clear coat finish – to keep the repaired headlight looking its best.

Here is a headlight that has faded over time. The foggy lens is unsightly and dangerous.
