headlightHeadlight Restoration


Are your vehicle’s headlights clouded and yellow?  Plastic lenses can yellow with age and from constant exposure to damaging sunlight, air pollution, dust and other contaminants reducing headlight brightness, and new lenses can be expensive. Let us restore them for you at the Auto Hobby Shop for only $39.95.  They’ll look brand new again, and you’ll be amazed at how much brighter night driving is as well as the improved appearance of your prized car or truck.
