Common Types of Rock Chips

Rock chips come in different shapes and sizes, anything over an inch is not repairable. Meaning not just the impact point which usually originates from one of these, but the entire area in which it has spread to. Anything bigger would need a windshield replacement. So if you get one of these on your windshield bring it in to Spider Autoglass as soon as possible before it gets worse. (These illustrations are only examples, not actual rock chips)

Headlight Restoration

The proper way to do Headlight Restoration

Many people claimed that they can do Headlight Restoration by using the “Headlight Restoration Kit”

Do they work or Do they even last a while?

We all know those “Headlight Restoration Kit” is a Temporary Fix. They do make your headlight look much better for a few days or may be a few months but you have to redo it when it oxidized / turn yellowish again. End up you have to keep buying the “Kit” and you end up paying more than visiting a shop that can do it professionally that would last.

Headlight Restoration is not just the skill how much you can restore the headlight but also the protection coating you apply that last. It’s actually a 2-Step Process. Correction and Protection. Over Spider’s Garage / Spider Autoglass, we have the professional skills to restore the headlight as much as possible and also the right product to protect the headlight. Actually, it’s recommend for the brand new cars to apply the protection coating on the headlight to prevent future oxidation / fading. We have seen cars that just 2 years old that need the Headlight Restoration from us already.
