Question Use an airbrush to apply Veil G4?

Going after the best possible appearance, is using an airbrush a good way to apply veil? Does it need to be thinned first? If so, using what to thin it?
The headlight in question is large and has complex curves. I need the appearance to be good even for close examination, if at all possible. My primary concern is the elimination of brush strokes and similar artifacts.
Do I need to apply multiple layers? Any special steps to avoid bubbles?

SheltonJ,

Although we have tried this ourselves, we have heard users have successfully applied Veil in this manner.

I believe Veil is sufficiently "thin" as to not require further thinning for use with an air-brush.

We have made large strides over the years to improve the application performance and appearance without needing such a device but we will continue to evolve Veil in its application so that, perhaps one day the "need" to do so to obtain the best appearance will be largely eliminated.

In the meantime, short of using a air gun, if one were to apply Veil with one of its foam brushes starting at the top of each housing and working oneself towards the lower section using single and smooth brush strokes should go a long way to maximizing its appearance.

Applying Veil (in either case) during the early morning or later hours when it is cooler should also allow Veil the best chance of setting up properly.

My recommendation would be not to overstroke your application and let gravity work for you.

Please let me know how you fair with either approach.

Thumbs up Testing the Veil G4 :)

Veil Guy,

Shelton is a good friend of mine. We talk back and forth and do testing together. I like his idea of air brushing the G4 on. Once he gets it applied we are going to test it with my Ultralyte LTI 20-20 from 2000 feet. I can't wait

I have already done some baseline runs with Scott to measure detection ranges with no Veil present. I did runs with my Blinder on and off.
Once I have applied the Veil, we will re-test in the same location so I can determine the relative effectiveness both with and without the Blinder active. Should be interesting.

Cool.

G4 has really picked-up performance versus LTI police lasers, I am pleased to say.

Car permitting, you should see some huge improvements with Veil G4 only and likely JTG (or near so) with the terrific Blinders paired with Veil.

I'd put that combo against any laser diode system and feel safer because of the proven longevity of both countermeasures.
