Headlight RestorationFeb 19th, 2016
My headlight lenses are all cloudy. I checked with my Sugar Hill vehicle dealership about replacing them and it is very expensive. What else can I do?
Fenski Automotive Center Inc. Answer:
You are right - replacing a headlight assembly can cost hundreds of dollars. Luckily there is something Sugar Hill citizens can do about cloudy headlamps.
First let's talk about why the headlamps are so cloudy. Back in the day, Sugar Hill vehicles' headlights were glass. These were heavy, could crack, and had practical limits as to their shape so started using plastic headlight lenses. Georgia Road grime and UV light take a toll on the plastic surface. Over time the lenses get cloudy and discolored. Just look at the vehicles in any Sugar Hill parking lot and you'll see a lot of that.
Because a disproportionate amount of traffic accidents happen at night, smart Sugar Hill citizens make sure they have maximum visibility. Cloudy lenses reduce the amount of light that gets out on the road, which in turn can really hurt the time you have to respond to hazards in the road.
Fortunately, we here at Fenski Automotive can restore your lenses. Using a combination of special cleaners and polishes, the cloudy and discolored layer is removed. This service costs a fraction of replacing the headlight assembly.
How much it is, will depend on the size of the lens and how badly it is clouded. Restoration can be done on brake lights, turn signals, and tail lights as well. If it's been over a year since you replaced your headlamp bulbs, they may have started to dim. You can ask your friendly and knowledgeable Fenski Automotive Center Inc. service advisor about options to replace or even upgrade your headlamp bulbs.
