Lexan is a very tough material, but degrades under direct sunlight. Lexan is much more durable than glass for headlight lenses, but it must be maintained to stay clear. If your headlight lenses are not clear, the limited light from your headlight bulb will be scattered, like a frosted household light bulb. The 55 watts of light must be precisely aimed and distributed in order to have headlights that are useful for night driving.
Save money - refinish headlights instead of replacing.
This is not the same process you buy in a kit at the auto parts store.
This is not a wipe-on coating that will turn cloudy or yellow in a month.
This is the real deal. We start by masking the paint around the headlight
lens to keep the sandpaper from damaging the finish. Then we wet sand
the degraded yellow top layer and texture off of the surface of the lens.
We continue with progressively finer grit until we finish with 2000 grit.
Then we dry the light and clean the surface. Then we spray a special clear
coat on that must be cured with a UV light. Once the initial cure is done,
we remove the masking material and place the headlights in direct sunlight
to perform a longer cure with heat. This job is labor intensive and will
cost $85.00 for the pair. That's a bargain compared to $200-$500 per headlight
on some cars!
