    Default Ordered my VEIL

    Ordered my VEIL from Roy, should be here early next week. Going to apply it to my Subaru Outback:



    Should I go all the way across the back since that part is likely "reflective" or just do the lights and plate?

    Being in Maryland, looks like I'm going to apply it directly to the plate since the law seems fuzzy regarding plate covers.

    Also, I have one of those acrylic/plastic deflectors on the front of the hood, should that be coated as well? It's not that large....

    Thanks

    robert,

    thanks for your confidence in our company's product line.

    your question about whether or not to treat the rear would depend on whether or not md. troopers target from the rear.

    if they do, then yes, i would think that you would want to treat at least the rear lights and plate in some way.

    about the reflective section of the rear - try this. point a flashlight (aka torch) at the rear from about 50 paces one evening. try to encompass the entire rear of your vehicle with its light.

    if you can easily see that section of the vehicle (relative to the painted surfaces, say) then my vote would be to treat that area, as well.

    on second thought, even if you don't you may still want to, as that will result in even more of the lidar beam being eliminated from your rear visual laser cross section.

    another gentleman, sometime back, had some compatibility problems with a very old/worn md license plate when applying veil directly to it. we generally recommend a clear/colourless plate cover treated with veil on two sides to start with. if your plate is not weather-beaten, then it may be just fine.

    good luck with it and keep me posted on your progress.

    ps: after shaking the container, let the material to stand for about five minutes before applying to such a large area. also, now that the weather is getting much warmer, we recommend that you apply veil in the early morning and evening (when its cooler) for best results. try one section at time until you get the hang of it. of course, having the area thoroughly cleaned before application is suggested.

    regards,

    Thanks for the info. The plates on this car are a year old, on my wife's they're 3 years old. Should be fine on both--both sets are in good condition.

    As for applying it, I'll use your advice and report back.

    OH one other thing. I have a black (smoke) plastic hood guard on the front, should that have VEIL on it too? I don't think so but figured I'd ask.

    thanks robert,

    based upon what i see my answer would be negative, not to apply veil to those areas as I believe they are dark enough. particularly, your crv.

    okay, will do. the dark smoke color (real dark brown, almost black, but transluscent) plus the degree of angle on the hood guard itself probably make sense not to coat it.
