    Default Botched Veil job... maybe

    I cleaned the headlights with alcohol, making the lens squeaky clean. The Veil would just bead up on contact. I thought it was a bust and when I applied a clean towel to wipe off the wet Veil, I noticed it left a nice haze on the lens.

    I did the front lights of the car that way with the towel wipe (kind of a dry brush method) and it does look darker.

    Question is will this brushed haze be of any use in comparison to the proper painted on method?

    I wouldn't neccessarily be that confident in your current protection level as is.

    The beeding up has to do with a polymer/polish/wax buildup or film on your headlight lenses.

    This situation has been documented well throughout the VEIL forum.

    The solution has also been documented: Remove the film with a product such as 3M Perfect-It of some other wax cleaner, follow with rubbing alcohol to clean any of that residue, and then apply VEIL as per instructions.

    Result: No more beeding, just a nice and level VEIL coating.

    Good luck.
