    Default My Laser Counter Measure - No Jammer

    Here is a pisture of my Car: Black


    I do not have a plate number

    Should I put the platenumber back and use laser shield?

    I am also going to use Laser viel... if i am using laser shield should i put a coat over that? Where in the car should I use the Laser Viel? The whole front plus the hood?

    I am also using a V1... mounted fairly high

    No money for any sort of jammer

    Should I be protected by using V1 + Laser Viel + Laser Shield?

    Nice looking car. I like black cars.

    If your state doesn't require a front plate then don't use one. No plate is better than a plate with Laser Shield.

    Veil on the headlights should be adequate. With no plate the headlights are the most reflective parts on the front of your car.

    V1 mounted high is a good idea. Coupled with Veil, you should have a few seconds warning to slow down. A Blinder will give you even more protection.

    The only other thing to think about is rear protection, if there's any chance that you could get lasered in the rear. Veil on the taillights plus a Laser Shield on the rear plate will help in that regard. Keeping your eyes open is the best defense against laser. Often you'll see the enforcer before they even aim the laser at your car.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?

    Might want to check out this thread:

    I would say yes, Veil the laser shield as long as it doesn't look too obvious for you. The only risk is that of getting a ticket for it if plate covers are illegal. We've gone through the numbers and it seems to me that the coat of Veil might just be the make-or-break addition.

    My car is still a work in progress. Right now I have Veil painted right on the headlights and a laser shield without Veil. My original plan was to put a coat of veil on the back of the lasershield but that was a little too dark. I think that the texture allows for more veil to be soaked up. I'm sure it's good for protection but bad for looks. Instead I'm going to try to Veil a piece of plexiglass and stick that behind the shield. Could be better, could be the same, could be worse. I have no idea but I like to experiment with different alternatives. I'm also working on a different way to Veil the headlights but I won't bother explaining it yet because I don't know if it's going to work.

    As far as results, so far so good. I've only seen one real laser trap since installing the combination and I got out unscathed. The V1 alerted twice, but since it's so sensitive I don't know if he was getting me both times or not.

    If you want to do it, I'd just say go for the basics. Put a nice, even coat of Veil on the headlights and then put some on the back of the laser shield if you think it's necessary. There are many on the board with much more laser experience than I have who will tell you that it works. Some of the videos speak volumes as well.

    I've got the same setup as brick and it gives you a good level of protection if you're not able to spring for a jammer. VEIL only goes on the lights and/or plate, NOT on the paint of your car so don't worry about that. order a lasershield and some VEIL from Roy and you'll be set.

    Heck, by some accounts Veil and a Laser Shield are just as good as a jammer! Again, I have to cite the video that was recently produced by several forum members. The jammers have trouble at long range, which is exactly where these passive countermeasures shine. Not to mention the fact that they won't set any jamming codes!
