Headlight Restoration
Headlight Restoration
Sparkle Lens Process
You call, text or e-mail us, describing the work you need done.
We will restore all sorts of vehicle light lenses, as long as they are plastic. We do not clear coat new, undamaged lenses, as they already have a clear coat. In rare cases, a restored lens will reveal water spots or damage inside. We cannot fix interior damage, but at least the lens will be clear again. (See below for fixing leaks.)

You authorize the work, once you have seen our quote, and we make an appointment to do the work, weather permitting.
We can restore headlights in most conditions, as long as the temperature is above 32ºF, wind is below 30 mph and it is not pouring rain, thundering, sleeting or snowing. We need access to your vehicle, with at least 3 feet between it and the obstruction nearest the lights to be worked on. That includes other vehicles, railings, walls, rock faces, glaciers, ninja deer, etc. We need 1-1/2 — 2 hours to restore two headlights.

We do the work and call, e-mail or text when it’s done.

You fall in love with your car again when you see its sparkling headlights!

Our Price
$88.00 for one set of headlights, $44.00 for one headlight. Other types of lights will probably be less. Their prices depend on how big they are. A giant light bar on top of a monster truck with Fresnel lenses one-foot across will probably be more. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. You can pay in person or via e-mailed invoice.

Guaranteed at least two years
If our clear coat lasts less than two years under normal driving and storage conditions, we will replace it free. This covers normal wear and tear, not abuse, vandalism, sandstorms, falling debris, fires, violence, earthquakes, tsunamis, or ninja deer.

Fixing Leaks
Look up videos on “replacing headlight assembly” for your vehicle. You need the ones about the whole light, not just the bulbs. Though it usually isn’t difficult, you may have to remove some trim pieces or even car body parts just to get to the bolts that hold the lens in. Have a blanket or some grass to lay the trim and body parts on. Once the lens is loose, remove the lamps (bulbs) and unclip all wire plugs still attached to the light. Take the lens out, making sure no electrical or electronic components are still attached, then run water into it to check for leaks (usually around the edges). Mark the leaks and seal them with clear caulk made for outdoor use. When the caulk is dry to the touch, dry the inside of the lens with forced air from the lamp holes for ten minutes, to make sure at least a skin on the caulk is dry on the inside. Test your seal by filling the lens with water again and checking for leaks. If the lens doesn’t leak, dump out the water and dry it again, this time until the water drops all dry, which takes up to an hour. You can’t leave any moisture in the lens, because it will be trapped in there once the lens is reassembled with its lamps. Once it’s dry, you can reinstall the lens. If you really want us to, we can do this, but we will need the car keys, so we can get the hood open, as many of the trim pieces that need removal, as well as the bolts, can only be reached once the hood is open.

Fixing Exterior Cracks
We may soon offer to fix some exterior cracks, as long as they are not open. In other words, the cracks can’t be leaving gaps. What we do is flow solvent into the crack to weld it together. At this point, it’s an experimental process, so we can offer it on a trial basis, much like beta testing. The cracks will be sealed, but they will not be invisible. They will be harder to see though. As for holes or large gaps, we can only offer to fill them with clear silicone, with the understanding that it will never look as good as an undamaged lens.
