What drives us
We're car people, plain and simple.
As a child growing up, I used to sit on the busy street by my house in the near city suburbs of Chicago and watch the cars go by. I used to study the grilles, the taillights and the emblems. I used be able to (and can still do the same thing today) name each car by make, model, year, and even trim level in some cases. Little things like that really made a difference in the way the car looked. In my opinion, the lines of the car could be the best, but if the design of the car had a poor front or tail end, I just wasn't interested. Headlights always and still do today give every car its character. Have you ever seen a car when it's in the body shop and it's missing its headlights? It sort of looks like the guys playing high stakes poker on TV when they wear the sunglasses. You can see their face but you can't see who they really are.
When it was time to trade in one of the family vehicles, we naturally started to clean up the car to make it look its best and hopefully get the most money in trade. The car was a 2005 Nissan Altima with very low millage. After a wax job and a good cleaning of the interior, the car looked and felt almost like new. Well, sort of. The stand out issue was the dirty, foggy headlights. They just ruined the way the car looked.
And while we always saw this as a problem on other cars, we felt we wanted to help people bring back the character to their cars and promote safe night time driving. After these damaged headlights are brought back to their clear glory and allowed to reveal the car's character, well, this is something that's always exciting for us. Every single owner that see's their car for the first time after a headlight restoration has a new outlook on how they feel about what they drive. And that drives us.
By the time See Better Systems took on its first paying customer, months and months of research and testing went into our restoration process. Working on our friends cars, neighbors cars, junk cars and even refinishing some headlights multiple times helped us develop what we believe is the best process to produce the strongest restoration available anywhere.
This business was developed with the intention to build on a solid foundation of ambition, quality & integrity. If for some reason we have not lived up to those standards, we need to know.

One more note.....
See Better Systems Inc. is a fully insured company specializing in headlight restoration. We are a family owned company based out of the northwest Illinois Chicago suburbs. We started this business not only because we see way too many cars on the road with damaged headlights, but we simply love anything with four wheels and a motor. If we can do our part to make them function better, then that's where our passion comes in.
