14 — Howick and Pakuranga Times, Monday, November 3, 2014 www.times.co.nz Fogged headlights not only look terrible but there is also a hidden danger in every set that is on the road. The reality is that clouded headlights don’t per- form at their best and the impact of this can be serious. Fogged headlights often appear dim to other road users, making the car appear further away than it actually is. The build-up on the casing is the result of UV damage to the plastic creating a cloudy effect which, in turn, disrupts the light pattern. This hinders the light from casting effec- tively on the road ahead meaning reduced visibility in comparison to fully clear headlights. When it comes to night safety do you really want to take a chance on second-rate perfor- mance from your headlights? Luckily Howick Auto Painters & Panelbeaters has a new headlight recovery product available to deal with this and, importantly, the company is an approved Howick area applicator.
