Sometimes even experienced drivers do not know how to restore the transparency of the headlights without resorting to grinding. It’s no secret that the headlights are made of polycarbonate, which darkens over time. One can understand how frustrating it is when your car’s gray headlights contrast with the shiny enamel of the bodywork. Many even think about replacing the headlights, not assuming that buying original parts is not a cheap pleasure. Let’s first define why this happens and how to prevent it.
The headlights become cloudy due to the peeling off of the factory protective coating, which peels off when wiping the headlights with a dry cloth, on which dirt and small grains of sand simply scratch the protective material.
To restore transparency to the headlights, headlight polish from RUSEFF or DW5040 will work well. Rinse and dry the headlight first, then spread the product on the surface. The applied varnish is rubbed in a circular motion with a microfiber cloth. It is desirable to do the last stage – the application of a UV sealant. This is a protective layer that will help prevent the lenses from fogging up.
For premature aging and protection against damage, Anti-Rain is perfect. Thanks to him, water flows from the headlights, washing away dirt and grains of sand with the rain. The ambient temperature for applying this composition requires more than ten degrees.
To keep the headlights clean in cold weather, a winter window cleaner will help. Its task is to melt ice and frost on the headlights and on the windshield. No wiping necessary after spraying.
Well, the cheapest analogue of cleaning products is toothpaste. Yes, indeed, it helps whiten headlights, but let’s not forget the real purpose of toothpaste.
We conclude that a variety of headlight polishes are the most economical options for the vehicle owner. Replacing headlight lenses is expensive, especially for a newly purchased car. Save your money with a variety of polishes and cleaners that will help restore your headlights to their original shine and clarity, as well as improve comfort and, most importantly, safety on the roads.
