I UNDERSTAND THERE IS A NEW WAY TO RESILVER HEADLIGHTS. IT IS FOR REPAIRING OLD HEADLIGHTS
AND CAN BE DONE AT HOME. I UNDERSTAND IT IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO FIX OLD HEADLIGHTS. HAS ANYONE USED THIS PRODUCT ?

Nope, but I bought the new replacements from Langs. Not the chrome ones, they have new ones with higher reflectivity and the right parabola. They work great. Very pleased and not very expensive.

I used Uvira to re-plate my reflectors. More info here in this past thread:

I guess it is better than $300.00 RE-RESILVER

Better than Chrome and Plastic

Yes, better than silver because it doesn't tarnish, and keeps its reflectivity up. MUCH better than (illegal) Chrome, which is only about 60% reflectivity, and plastic, which is flash chromed.

I bought the chrome ones from Lang's. I'm sure that there are reflectors that are better, but I view the headlights as marker lights - I'm not driving a poorly-lit 35 mph car on the 50 mph flat Florida roads at night anyhoo.

John, if you talk to Uvira they can actually spray that reflective aluminized finish on the chrome re-pop reflectors. Talk to Bob Atwood. He's owner and can answer you questions. Its to very inexpensive to have that process done and have reflectors that actually work well.

AND, in many states it is still Illegal to have chrome headlight reflectors. I doubt that anyone is enforcing that law, but there was a reason for it "Back in the Day." Chrome is a lousy reflector surface.
