4 Tips to choosing between foggy or yellowed headlights

Restoring cars is a favorite pastime of many and can be a very rewarding hobby for car enthusiasts. Some people will scour the web or local auction sites for old cars to fix up. They will purchase the car and then restore it to a beautiful condition and then either sell it for a profit or keep it for themselves to enjoy. One of the projects that has to be completed before a car can be completely restored is the headlights. This article will discuss how to restore headlights - 4 methods and tips on choosing the right type of headlights for your car.

  1. Type of car. Depending on the type of car you have purchased and are going to restore will set the stage for the type of headlight you will want to install. For example, if you choose a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray you may want headlights that are made specifically for that car. While some choose to purchase kits that allow them to completely modify the car back to its original look, others want to transform the headlights to something a bit more modern. Whatever you choose to do, make sure to look into this first and read about those who have done it. It would be a disappointment to convert your car to use a more modern headlight system to decide afterwards that you dislike it.
  1. Style. Depending on the style you want your car to have, you should choose a headlight package accordingly. If you are interested in a yellow headlight package, you should do research and read reviews about how the yellow performs in various climates and weather conditions. It would be troublesome to find yourself stuck on a drive because you are unable to see ahead of you.

  1. Cleaning and maintenance. Another consideration that you must think about is the cleaning and maintenance that will go into caring for your headlight package. Try to choose a package that is easy to maintain. While some packages offer a unique and cool look, it may be a nightmare to change the bulbs or keep clean. If you choose a special material, such as chrome, you may have to purchase cleaning supplies that are made just for that material. This could be a costly expense over time. You will want to make sure that you are able to afford the cost of upkeep over the years ahead.

4.Longevity. Choosing a headlight package that is well known for withstanding the test of time as well as the various climate conditions in which you live will serve you well. While it can be expensive to purchase and restore a car, you will want to be certain that the money you invest in the restoration process is going to last a long time. Nothing would be more frustrating than to spend time and money restoring a car to then need to promptly replace something because it did not last long. Save yourself the frustration and do your research before you invest.
