Headlight Refurbishment in Horsham

Over time a cars headlight lens will oxidize and turn cloudy, or become discoloured, producing not just a poor cosmetic appearance, but actually restricting the brightness of the headlamps. Why replace and bin when you can easily restore?

Foggy headlights and dimming beams affect even the most conscientious drivers, so let’s look at why your lights might not be as bright as they once were.

Headlight casing can become cloudy or appear yellow for several reasons:

Oxidisation: headlight lenses are coated in a clear layer to help prevent acrylic from oxidising. Over time the coating wears off and UV light oxidises the casing, turning it yellow.

Wear and tear: your protective coating is prone to scrapes and scratches from debris on the road, when this reaches beyond the protective layer the casing becomes damaged and appears cloudy.

Dirt: after miles on the road, a thin layer of dirt and chemicals from pollution can gather on the headlight casing, dimming your beams.

Water vapour: headlights come with a watertight seal that often breaks through wear and tear, once this happens water can collect inside the casing, scattering beams of light.

Even with bulbs in perfect condition, your headlights will appear dim or discoloured when you have a cloudy/foggy casing.

Fantastic service received for an unusual request to lacquer an old vintage bike frame. Being over 30 years old, it understandably had a few scratches and chips in the paint. Peter was able to prevent further damage by re-lacquering it, providing a cheap way to retain the original paint job, and still protect it for many years to come. Thanks very much!

Great service from start to finish. Arranged a pick up from our house and Peter loaned us a car. Great communication throughout and good quality work as well as very competitive pricing. Car was returned cleaned inside and out. Very happy and would use again.

Peter is professional from start to finish and really flexible. It's very convenient having the car picked up and dropped off after a valet. The Audi looks as good as new, you wouldn't know the damage was ever there. Thank you!

Peter did an outstanding job on a very nasty scratch on the bumper of my BMW. From start to finish the process of booking in, collecting and delivering the car back was seamless and all done within a week. My car bumper looks brand new again and I couldn’t be happier. No hesitation recommending Peter to anyone needing bodywork and I will definitely use him again.
