Fab Finds For Fathers – Sylvania SilverStar Ultra Bulbs & Headlight Restoration Kit (up for grabs)

Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to give Bryan items he needs. He racks up each year on shirts, ties, and slacks. This year I wanted to give him something different, something he would enjoy. I know he likes to putter around with the car, making “improvements.” The fact is, while he is great at a lot of things, car repair and improvement is not his forte. I needed something simple, something foolproof and easy to fix.

He’s constantly complaining about the headlights on our daughter’s car. They’re not bright enough  and it’s hard to see when driving at night. I didn’t realize, until I read a snippet on the Sylvania website that car headlights are  coated with a UV protection when they leave the factory. Over time this coating wears off, leaving the headlights weak and scattering light.  Headlights in this condition  can have as much as a 66% reduction in downroad illumination.  Discovering this fact did make me feel better. I thought it was because I couldn’t see well.

The Sylvania Headlight Restoration kit was the perfect gift for the “do it yourself dad” that needs a little help. Not only does it increase the value of the car, it requires no tools and only takes around thirty minutes to complete.  They even have an instructional video available to make sure he doesn’t mess up. (If I can get him to watch it.)

As the winner of the Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice Award and recommended by a leading consumer magazine as the most effective headlight lens restorer, I felt safe using this product.  Let’s see. Instructional video available, recommended by experts and extremely simple. Yes, it seems like a fun  constructive way to spend an afternoon.

Not only did we receive the restoration kit, we received new SilverStar ULTRA bulbs for the headlights as well. These bulbs can provide up to 50% greater brightness, increase visibility down the road by up to 40%, and peripheral visibility by up to 50%, providing as much as 50 to 100 feet more visibility at night.

I can’t wait until Father’s Day to present these to Bryan. I’ll feel better knowing our child is safer and he’ll have fun with his restoration project. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Win It!
One person will receive a set of SilverStar Ultra Bulbs and a Headlight Restoration kit.

    I could really use it so I would keep it! I have no husband or father living – and I have 8 sons so it would kinda tricky to give it to one of them anyway!

    My husband and myself. The van’s headlights are terrible. At night, I try to stay on roads with street lights or I can barely see.
