All About Headlight Restoration

Headlight restoration is renewing weathered vehicle headlights to restore their original clarity and functionality. Over time, the plastic lenses of headlights can become cloudy due to environmental factors. Some factors that affect your headlight performance are:

  • Oxidation Process: Car headlights can become yellowed by prolonged exposure to UV rays.
  • Water Vapor: If the watertight seal around the headlight comes damaged, water vapor can condense inside the acrylic lens.
  • Driving Conditions: Run-ins with debris on the road can scratch and scrape the lens of your headlights.

These factors diminish the effectiveness and can affect a driver's ability to spot road hazards. Clean headlights also provide a variety of benefits, including:

  • Improved visibility at night
  • Enhanced vehicle appearance.
  • Increased vehicle resale value.
  • Cost-effective compared to headlight replacement.

Texas Headlight Laws

The Texas Department of Public Safety has guidelines regarding the external lights on vehicles. Vehicles must have two operational headlights on either side of the front of the car. A white light should also illuminate the rear license plate when you turn on the headlights.

The DPS recommends using a reputable company to ensure the quality of your headlight restoration services and that the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) or Department of Transportation (DOT) approve the parts you receive. At Glass Doctor of Bell County, we use approved vehicle lights, lenses, and restoration techniques that comply with federal standards and state transportation codes.
