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.

Product / Tool List:

Ceramic Pro 9H –

Ceramic Pro 9H is a permanent nano-ceramic protective paint coating. Its transparent 3D matrix structure protects the paint or surface from scratches, graffiti, dirt, aging, premature oxidation, weathering, road salt, rock chips, bugs, bird droppings and even acid rain. It offers excellent scratch, thermal (1382 degrees), UV, oxidation, corrosion and chemical resistance. A surface that has been sealed with Ceramic Pro 9H stays clean for a longer period of time due to its smoothness and hydrophobic qualities. Ceramic Pro 9H is permanent and can only be removed using machine polish. The unique formulation of 9H has enabled it to be multi-layered which means the thickness of the coating can be increased with additional layers allowing a thicker/harder film that will increase its scratch resistance.

Ceramic Pro Light – The super hydrophobic and anti-graffiti effects of Ceramic Pro Light mean the coated surface will stay cleaner for longer as dirt and grime will not stick to it. Ceramic Pro Light is highly durable and leaves a high gloss surface once applied.

  • Durability up to 24 months
  • Super Hydrophobic Effect

2014 Audi A6 Ceramic Pro Gold Paint Protection Coating Package

Charles was looking for the paint protection for his brand new 2014 Audi A6 Black.  He didn’t take the dealership paint protection offer and he even told the detailer over the dealership not to detail his car. However, the dealership still offer some free “marks” on his car when Charles picked up his car unfortunately so we have to do some paint correction before apply the paint protection coating.

The car was looking great when we were inspecting the paint under the sun. However after the wash, we can see the medium level of holograms, swirl marks etc. paint imperfection over the car after we washed it. It’s sad to know the car will look bad after just one car wash as the previous detailer applied the glaze to hide the imperfection. Over our shop we do not use any product to hide the imperfection so we told Charles to hold on few more days to get the paint corrected before applying the coating. We were so glad that Charles understands the situation and let us to work on this beautiful Audi.

E46 BMW M3 Carbon Black Ceramic Pro Silver Package and Stage 2 Paint Correction

This is the customer review over the yelp

“Anyone who has known me since I got my car knows I have been avidly trying to find a detailer. I tried over four different detailers in the Bay Area and have paid over hundreds and hundreds of dollars. I have personally over $1000+ worth of detailing equipment, polishes, waxes, cleaners … you name it! I pretty much got screwed every time. Either the detail was really expensive and lasted for a few days, or after the first wash it was basically gone.

Also, washing my car was a pain in the butt. It would take me over 45 minutes just for a “quick” wash and even then I couldn’t help but leave water spots at times because the car’s dark and I live in California (a.k.a. sun).

I have never really achieved these kind of results. I didn’t know anything about this “technology” until SpiderAuto Glass exposed me to it. After this coating, I didn’t wash my car for 3 weeks. I went to the track for the entire weekend. I drove it to work every day. It rained several times during that week and my work seriously has pollen storms 3x a day.

Afterwards, my car looked awful, disgusting, and had spots everywhere including tree sap, tree crap, bird crap, pollen crap, and general disgustingness. I honestly didn’t believe. I mean … I have seen my car like this before. I have seen what happens after a while.

Results were … needless to say. Amazing. I can’t tell you how much simpler its going to be from now on to wash my car and keep it clean. Plus, it took less than 20 minutes. From disgusting to sparkling clean, even in the rain.

Talk about A++

p.s. it was so awesome I asked to get my new BBK’s coated!

p.s.s. I also had them replace my windshield! ”
