This is really for Veilguy, but I thought it might be useful to everyone.
I ordered a can of G4 this morning. I was thinking about decreased light output, and what to do about it (I live in the middle of nowhere so light output is important to me).
My projector bezel is repainted matte black/red. Could I Veil the entire headlight lense except for a circle, say 1.5" to 2" directly in front of the projector? More to the point, how much would that lessen the effectiveness of the Veil?
It seem to me that that would retain much more of the light output, and without chrome behind the projector it shouldn't be super reflective.
So everyone can get an idea of what I'm talking about, here's a (albeit crappy, iPhone taken pic) of the headlight housing. I don't mind veiling over the inner, halogen, mirrored bit, as that's basically just for flash to pass... but I would like to keep the projector unobstructed.
