Headlamps serve multiple purposes for a vehicle. First, they add a sense of character and personality to the car. Their shape, design, color—it all influences the styling. Secondly, they serve a practical purpose when driving in the dark. It’s impossible to overlook the importance of headlamps, which is why headlamp restoration should be executed as soon as you realize your vehicle requires it.
If you’re seeking an auto body shop that can tackle this process for you around Worcester, Auburn, and Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, we hope you consider our devoted team at Harr Collision Center.
How Long Does Headlamp Restoration Take?
The process of restoring the headlamps of a vehicle to their optimal performance and appearance is a quick one. Depending on the size of the headlamp, restoration for a single lamp can often fall between 20 minutes and 40 minutes. Another variable to consider during the restoration process is the type of repair that’s required.
If the headlamp needs to be replaced entirely as opposed to just spruced up, the process could take longer than a half hour.
What’s Involved in a Typical Headlamp Restoration?
If your headlamps have received the normal wear and tear that comes with age, the restoration process will mostly focus on sanding off the top lens coating and applying a new, protective top layer.
There’s always a coating on the outside of headlamps that works to amplify the brightness of their lights while also working to protect the lamp from weather and other elements. Over time the coating thins and a new coating must be applied.
What If I Need to Replace My Headlamp?
If you’ve recently been in a fender bender or maybe you had the misfortune of a rock kicking up and cracking one of your headlamps, you may need the light replaced rather than restored. Our auto body shop can step up and lend a hand in this instance, too.
