and compounds to achieve the best results

for your specific needs.

4. Optional Preparatory Steps: If necessary, we

7. Final Touches: Once satisfied with the results,

1. Initial Assessment: We start by evaluating the

condition of your headlights, noting any

oxidation, haze, or scratches that may be

affecting their appearance and functionality.

2. Preparing the Work Area: To safeguard your

car's paint and trim, we use masking tape to

protect the surrounding areas. This ensures a

focused and precise restoration process.

3. Wet Sanding: Using a water spray bottle, we

wet the headlights and begin the sanding

process. Starting with a coarse grit, we

gradually move to finer grits, smoothing out

the surface and removing imperfections.

4. Polishing Magic: Applying a specially

formulated polishing compound, we bring out

the power tools, using a drill attachment or

applying the compound manually. This step is

crucial for achieving that crystal-clear finish

by eliminating any remaining haze.

5. Thorough Cleanup: After polishing, we wipe

off any residue with a clean microfiber towel,

ensuring the headlights are free from any

remaining polishing compound.

6. Sealant Application: If your headlights require

extra protection, we apply a UV sealant as the

finishing touch. This not only enhances the

clarity but also guards against future

oxidation and UV damage.

7. Quality Check: We conduct a meticulous

inspection to ensure the headlights are clear,

free from haze, and meet our quality
