Car Sci Guys Headlight Restoration Difference in Clarity

Car Sci Guys Headlight Restoration Difference in Clarity


Welcome back to car side guys and today we’re going to talk about
headlight clarity and headlight restoration and why we recommend
getting headlights restored
we’re gonna compare output of
one that has been restored and one that hasn’t been restored, but first we’re talking about why
why headlights would need to be restored and
kind of talk about why that happens
Yes
over time
You know the headlights are
exposed to UV rays. That’s the sun’s constantly beating down on those
So the plastics degradating from that then you throw in your drive behind the guy in front of you maybe to close
Whatever the scenario is exactly but you know, you’ve got dirt and debris in particulates getting kicked up onto the lens
So the plastic gets beat up there. It’s basically sandblasting the plastic. Yep, for sure. And so it’s gonna look
kinda like this one here. Yep
Overtime that’s what they ended up looking like. It’s that foggy hazy look
And ultimately it affects your vision your vision down the road, especially at night
That’s going to effect how far you can see down the road. And so then we have our one that’s been restored over here
You can see the obvious difference with how clear it is
but we’re also going to show on a light meter what that
Why that clarity is important and how much that actually affects what you can and can’t see.
We going to pull this guy over.
There’s our hot spot and as we can see on the gauge this is actually off of the chart
And that chart that scale is in kilo Candela.
Then we’re gonna roll it over to our one that has not been restored
Yeah, and you can see we’re only at about 8
8 kilocandela
Which is equivalent to 8,000 lumens.
Where our other one was well over
24,000 lumens.
Today we have
the obvious proof
Yep measurable
That’s why two on for a lot of safety inspections in a couple different states many different states
they would recommend that as a safety inspection item because that’s affecting how far you can see down the road
So we’re gonna do another test
Just see how it looks we’re going to turn the lights off and see how it looks.
And that’s ultimately what we’re trying to avoid
We want everyone to be safe and be able to see properly when driving so we can just to see how important it is to get those headlights restored.
