Tips to Keep Your Chevrolet Tahoe Headlight in Top Condition
Your Chevrolet Tahoe headlight is designed to ensure safety and stylish look for your ride. This essential part serves as a guide for other drivers to be aware of your presence. It also serves as your visual aid especially when during harsh weather. Because of its crucial safety function, your headlight needs to be maintained at all times. Here are some tips to keep your Chevrolet Tahoe headlight clean and polished:
- Make use of appropriate cleaning materials for your headlight.
You must wash your headlight using a mixture of mild car soap and warm water, and let it dry. If you notice that your headlight appear yellowish, then it is an indication of exposure to UV rays. For this matter, you must use a polishing compound. If your headlight still appears dull, you can use a window cleaner or even toothpaste for cleaning. Simply spray the window cleaner on the surface and wipe it using a microfiber cloth. For the toothpaste, you must use a non-gel type because this is known as an alternative cleaning agent. Rub it evenly on the surface of your headlight.
- Use different textures of sandpaper to even out your headlight.
It is recommended to buff your headlight by using sandpaper. You may opt to start with a 1500-grit sandpaper, until you increase around 2000-grit to 3000-grit for a more refined finish. By using sandpaper, you will prevent your headlight from becoming yellowish, although it may look blurry because of the coarse material. The important goal in using sandpaper is to even out the surface of your headlight for an easier job of polishing it.
- Polish your headlight using a polishing compound or buffing pad.
Apply a buffing or polishing compound on your headlight to remove discoloration, and to enhance its look as well. Use a microfiber towel to spread out your buffing compound, and wipe your headlight in a circular motion. You can also use a buffing pad attached to a hand power drill to smoothen out your headlight. Maintain the power at its minimum setting. You can add more power to the drill at a gradual motion. You may repeat the process to achieve a shinier finish.
