Composite Headlight Systems
Composite headlight assemblies are a lot better than their predecessors - the glass lensed sealed beam lights that were a standard issue from the 1940s through the 1990s. They had a good run, but when they burned out, you discarded the whole unit. This was wasteful.
Starting in the 1980s, cars sold in the USA were permitted to use composite headlights, where individual parts could be replaced. The Lincoln Mk VII from 1984 was the first to do so. Composite lighting systems are now the norm around the world. While they have many advantages, their acrylic lenses are the Achilles heel of the system.
What Makes Headlights Look Bad?
Oxidation can make them look yellow. Scratches and swirl marks can make them look dull and worse, diffuse the light they output, reducing the light available to help the driver see and the car is seen on the road.
Fortunately, there are solutions. The same technologies used to restore scratched and fading paintwork on a car can be used on the headlight lenses. Restoring them to full function and original appearance is possible.
