Healthy Headlights: Easy maintenance tips

We’re all used to wiping off our headlights to remove bugs and grime, but good headlight maintenance is a little more important than just visual appeal, it’s also important for your safety when driving at night, in the rain or fog. So before you pack up your classic car for your next road trip or club meet-up, check out our handy headlight maintenance checklist.

Don’t wait for your headlights to burn out
Many drivers never think of replacing their headlights until they actually burn out. When you see your headlights are starting to dim, it’s time to hurry up and replace them before they suddenly burn out on you completely. Tip: If you are swapping out one headlight, swap out the other at the same time.
