Hello, all. My first post here, though I've been lurking for a while.
I just received my Veil and Blinder. The Blinder installation will have to wait a few days, but I'm ready to go ahead with applying the Veil to the front headlights of my VW R32 (Mk IV Golf). I don't want to waste any of the product, so I want to ensure I'm applying it correctly.
The R32's headlight housings are a plastic (polycarbonate?). I plan to first clean them with rubbing alcohol, to eliminate any residual grime and wax and ensure adherence of the Veil. Good plan?
Second, the Veil instructions say to use "long brush strokes," then brush horizontally. Does this mean that you first brush it on in vertical strokes, then brush at 90 degrees (horizontally)? That's the way I'm reading it. I'd appreciate any clarification, though.
Finally, which is better for this type of application--the bristle brush or the foam brush?
I'm itching to get the Blinder installed, but since I'm a bit ham-fisted, I'll either need quite a bit of time to do it or I'll have to locate a professional installer in my area (western 'burbs of Chicago).
Thanks for the excellent forum!
