Daylight Savings Time Ends: Get Ready for Darker Nights

It’s that time again: Daylight savings time (DST) will end at 2 AM on Sunday, November 2 and clocks will fall back to standard time.

Although the pros/cons to daylight savings time are often debated, there is one thing we know for certain – We will have darker nights as we change our clocks this Sunday.

The Waste of Daylight Book

Daylight Savings Time + Oxidized Headlights = Bad Time

Oxidized headlights can significantly reduce the amount of light your vehicle’s headlights can output.  Book a headlight restoration now and enjoy the benefits of being able to see better at night.

Check out our Photo Gallery for examples of some of our work.

Are Your Headlights Ready for School?

School’s back in session and your teenager is probably daydreaming about their future car.  Typically, headlights aren’t a main concern when looking to purchase a used car, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be on the checklist.  Proper working headlights are important because they produce the light in front of your vehicle so that objects are visible at night.  Oxidized headlights can reduce light output by up to 90%.  One of our top compliments after completing a headlight restoration service is the customer enjoying how much they can see again at night.

Safety

Vehicles older than 5 years may require a headlight restoration to increase their light output during night time driving. According to Florida Law, dimmed (low-beam) headlights must show objects at least 150 feet ahead.  This is very important while your teenager is still learning the basics of driving.

Headlight Style

A headlight restoration will not only allow your teenager to see further at night, but will increase their style points. Looks are very important for some teenagers and a headlight restoration will make your car look new again.

Solution

Schedule a Headlight Restoration with Orlando Headlight Cleaning today and rest assured that your teenager can see at night.

Moisture Inside the Headlights

One of the things that we cannot fix is moisture trapped inside the headlight. This is caused by a leak in the seal around the lens and the housing.

This is an example of moisture trapped inside the headlight:

We informed the customer that sadly, we can’t fix this.  We did perform a headlight restoration on this particular headlight, which will increase visibility at night.  We informed them that to fix this, you can either purchase another headlight or remove the headlight and find the cause of the problem.

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Headlight Restoration

Today we performed a Headlight Restoration on “Big Red”.

Orlando-Headlight-Cleaning-2004 Hyundai Santa Fe-Headlight-Restoration

The owner was extremely pleased with the restoration and questioned how they became faded in the first place.

We explained it like this:

Daily exposure to UV from the sun eats away at the clear coat used to seal headlights at the factory.  This process is normal but often leads to the ugly headlights you see on the road.

She now has her headlights protected and guaranteed for 2 years to be clear of defects or discoloration.
