I ordered Veil a month ago, thinking that was all I needed to do. Then I read where there are problems with applying it with the foam brushes supplied, and that it was better applied with an airbrush. So I went to the hobby store, and bought the cheapest airbrush for $20+. Of course it requires air, so I had to pay another $13 for the can of air. Then I saw in the instructions where you need ammonia to clean the paint off, so I got a $2 bottle of ammonia from Wal-Mart. Then I saw where you need to tape off the painted parts of the car to keep from applying Veil to paint, so I bought some painter's masking tape for $5. So now the cost has been increased by $40.
Today, I thoroughly clean the surfaces (day after a car wash), and then had my daughter (she's the artist) paint the lights and license plate cover. The airbrush did not clog, but the can o' air formed ice. Then used the ammonia to spray through the airbrush to clean it. As she said, you can barely see it (even though the paint itself is black).
I applied this the day after applying Aquapel on my windshield, so the thought is I can reapply both every six months, at the same time. On the one hand, I'm glad that the application is so smooth that you cannot see it. On the other hand, it is really hard to believe that this will actually do any good at all. It makes me wonder if it is worth the trouble and expense, especially since I hava dual LI high power jammer.
Now with Laser Interceptor Dual High Power, CR8APL8, Laser Shield and Veil, all applied, the question is whether Veil is an unnecessary extra expense and a waste of time? Another question is whether the cold temperature of the can of air actually hinders the application of Veil, even though it did not appear to.
