    Default Rubbing out Veil?

    OK, it's daytime and the Veil didn't go on as smooth as Sethy would have gotten it. (At least, that's the legend...)

    If I had put on some regular paint that ended up looking like this, I'd very carefully rub it for a while with some ultra-fine cut compound. Has anyone done that with Veil?

    drb,

    i really wouldn't recommend this approach. if you are having some steaking problems may i suggest a couple of things:

    1) make sure the surface is thoroughly cleaned and dried
    2) shake veil material and let stand for five minutes before using
    3) start with horizontal strokes (heavier amount of veil) at the top of each surface.
    4) let gravity do the work to flow out and smooth brush marks.
    5) try using the foam applicator, instead of brush
    6) do not apply directly in sunlight or when high temperatures - best in the early morning or everning when its cooler.
    7) no precipitation in the schedule for 1-2 days.
    8) after 10 minutes of drying, you may use a hair dryer to reduce curing time.
    9) be careful not to spill it. :wink: (thanks sethy)

    hope these suggestions, help you.

    ...and number 10: Don't try to apply Veil at night! That's pretty much the problem with mine.

    I'll just let this application look tacky for a while, until it needs to be re-done. I've still got plenty left, so the next time I apply it, it will look ever-so-much better. I'm sure! :?

    It takes a few applications to get good at applying this stuff. I've done my headlights three times and I'm still learning. It gets better every time, though, and it's definitely worth the effort!
