Headlight crackle/shatter effect

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Has anyone had the issue of their headlights looking all crackled/shattered? I have tried to feel the exterior surface of the headlight with my fingers but it doesn't seem to be on the outside (not 100% though). It is most noticeable at night with the headlights on. Anyone have this problem? And can offer some fix, if any?

Give the outside a polish.

 

Otherwise, replace the headlights with mint ones and use UV cut globes.

Thanks mate. I did give them a polish already today as they were hazy/dull and it just made the cracks show up even more now as the lens is much clearer.

Start again... Hit em with 400 sand paper and hit em hard. Then you need to work your way down the grades so 800 / 1200 / 1500 / 2000

this should take half a millimetre off the face of the light and fix the crazy cracks. (yes I have done this to many lights) when you have done this, do the polishing thing.

And if you have half a brain and love your car get a headlight restore kit that has a sealer to save this happening again.
