    Default Curvy Headlights

    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd throw this out there for opinions/thoughts.. I drive a Grand Am, which has very cury, non-flat headlights (and in fact, very few flat surfaces at all on the front of the vehicle). In Alberta, front license plates are not required and I certainly do not have one.

    Any thoughts if this shape reduces laser reflection or helps scatter the signal anywhere but back to the targetting gun?

    I am considering purchasing Veil to help even further, but admit, I find it's price for a new internet product with little exposure thus far a little risky. On the other hand, I see the Veil guy's contribution to the newsgroups here a definite positive sign that there is some integrity here. As a suggestion, perhaps a smaller quantity at a lower price would help lure more people like me into trying it, although I probably will anyway.

    A black car that is curved with no reflective surfaces has the smallest "footprint" for a lidar gun read. So if your car is black or you install a black car bra(if your car is not black) and you Veil your headlights and anything else reflective on the front end, you will have a good decrease in the distance a speed reading is attainable.

    Example of a good car would be the late model black Pontiac firebird, 1998 to 2002? Curved front end with flip up headlights.

    Jamal - whenever I think of a good stealth car I think black 4th generation Firebirds...

    The GA has fairly big headlamps and this will relflect like a real sum*****.

    I love my 4th gen fbody for this reason too but more so for the 350 under the hood and sleek styling. It is not black but dark in color with a full flat black bra. I also covered the front fog lights and have no front plate. During the day the only target for a laser gun operator is my skiny little turn signal lights at the far edges of the car. When I am hit from the front, about the only reflection an officer's laser gun gets is from my Blinder. :twisted:

    Why have a non-ram air when you have a ram air?
