    Default Applying Veil

    Finally no rain for the next few days! I'm going to Veil my car tonight and was looking for any last minute suggestions. Here's the plan:

    Shake it up and let it sit for 5 or 10
    Tape off bumper/everything else
    Clean the lights.
    Apply.

    I also bought a foam brush thats like the one supplied, but wider.

    I would think foam is better than the regular brush, and suggestions?

    Foam is MUCH better than a brush. Trust me. After 6 applications I finally learned that foam is better. Pretty much do everything you have planned and you will be fine

    Well I got it on. Used a bigger foam brush. It looks ok, I might re-do the driver's side light. It went on a little thicker than the other light and streaked some.

    I did the reflective plastic vw emblem in the middle too. that came out pretty good and you can't notice it unless you're three feet away.

    Now all I need is a jammer and I should be ok. :?

    I'll try and post some pics.

    Would love to see pictures of the emblem. The front of my Volvo has some chrome (or chrome like finish) that I would have to coat with Veil. I don't want it to make the new car look like sh$t though....

    Thanks,
    Rick

    I'll grab a digi cam as soon as I can. The emblem looks great though. It's a bit streaky up close, but overall its not even close to as noticable as the lights. Being front center I think it is needed. I don't have a front plate yet, so it is the only thing there to be caught by a laser.

    I would do this but on the VW there is a cutout spot in the hood where the vw circle comes up, and a grille without this looks like **** unless I get a new hood

    I may have to get something though, because I won't have space for Blinders in there.
