Hazy, crazed or discoloured headlights on your car

- Wednesday, June 04, 2014

Are your car headlights dull?  Polycarbonate lenses on older model cars can become hazy, cloudy and crazed due to the effects of sunlight exposure and air-borne pollutants. This can affect the vehicle's road worthiness as it reduces the car headlight output.

Here at Honey I Scratched the Car we specialise in car headlight lens refurbishment, which can restore the lamp to an acceptable road worthiness condition, from just $88 for a set (pair).  Find your nearest store.

In severe cases, headlights can be crazed underneath (cracked), this can’t be fixed and replacement with new or good second-hand lamps are cost effective options.

Better vehicle lighting can improve driver recognition of objects and therefore increase vehicle safety.

Stay safe, and happy motoring!
