Quick Tip: Healthy Headlights

We're all used to wiping off our headlights to remove bugs and grime. But good headlight maintenance is a little more important than just visual appeal. It's also crucial for your safety when driving at night, in the rain, or in fog. So before you gear up your classic car for your next road trip or club meet-up, check out our handy headlight maintenance checklist. Clean headlights that are working will help ensure every drive at night or in adverse weather will be a safer and happier one.

Don't Wait for Your Headlights to Burn Out

Many drivers never think of replacing their headlights until they actually burn out. When you see your headlights are starting to dim, it's time to hurry up and replace them before they suddenly burn out on you completely. You don't want to find yourself driving at night with no way to see what's in front of you. In addition, even one burned out headlight can give a friendly local officer an excuse to pull you over. In most vehicles, replacing headlights is a cinch. If you lack the time or skills to do the job yourself, you can find a professional to do it quickly and inexpensively.

Tip: If you are swapping out one headlight, swap out the other at the same time.

Choose Better than Average Headlights

There are basic headlights, and there are deluxe headlights. What do you choose? The better-quality headlights usually have better visibility, more clarity, and whiter light for more contrast and visibility down the road. Because it's a lot easier and cheaper to replace a broken headlight than a totaled car, it's worth spending a little more to get better headlights that will help you see and be seen in even the darkest, most adverse conditions.

If your headlights are foggy, cloudy, or even a little yellow, cleaning headlights with car headlight cleaner spray will only provide a temporary improvement. For a longer-lasting fix, it's time for a car headlight restoration. Headlight restorations are even easier, faster, and cheaper than replacing headlights. They will help you see where you're going much better and also alert other drivers, bikers, and pedestrians to your presence. A good DIY car headlight cleaner kit can help remove that dull haze and restore brightness and clarity. These days, headlight restoration kits often come with UV protection to further prevent damage from the sun.

Consider Replacing Your Headlights Yourself

Even if you're not handy with tools, replacing a headlight is actually easy. Consider safety and the tools you need, follow the instructions, and save yourself some money.
