Cars with cracked or missing headlights are becoming increasingly common, with dealers offering free or discounted repairs, aftermarket tinting and car roofing.
But while it may sound like a simple fix, there are a number of ways to fix it, including removing your car’s headlights.
To prevent damage to the headlights, a DIY mechanic can apply a coating of car paint to the underside of the windshield.
This will protect the LED bulbs from damaging during the winter months and allow the car to remain safe to drive.
Alternatively, you can apply some type of anti-corrosive sealant to the top of the headlights.
If you have your car with an airbag or airbags, you might want to replace them with a more powerful airbag.
A good way to protect the headlamps is by replacing the battery with a new one.
This will make the battery last longer and allow you to recharge it later.
This can save you from having to buy a new battery each time you want to use the headlights again.

You can also apply a thin coating of a car paint, which can protect the paint from water.
A car roof can also be damaged by sunburn, but you can make it look better by using a car roof protector.
A paint job can also help reduce glare and make the outside look brighter, with a variety of different finishes available.
However, if you have an existing roof, you should still do some extra work to make it more resistant to the elements.
For instance, a roofer can apply an exterior sealant such as a waterproof fabric or a paint coating, while the body of the car can also have its exterior painted.
It’s worth noting that while car roofs are commonly fitted with a layer of paint, you’ll need to apply a layer to the inside of the roof as well.
A few other DIY options are available, as well, including a paint job, replacing the windshield, replacing a light bar or even replacing a radiator.
