: while there are many places that claim to sell radar jammers, none really work. as for a car coating, being reflective is just what you DONT want. one could make up a car paint that would totally absorb radar, and in fact, it wouldnt be that hard to make at home...BUT! it would be ugly as hell (think stealth fighter)...it may buy you a factor of two or more in radar detection range...allowing you to beat most radar. There might be a way to paint the car with the stealth paint then a colored overcoat, but it would be very tough...another way to do it would be to make a real radar jammer. If one knew the internal circuitry of the V1, one could make a fast triggerd jamming device....
: I'll look into it, I was thinking about this a while back and I don't think it would be THAT tough...but really, what do you need it for? so you can do 140 past a cop? visual speed detection is also valid (albeit easier to beat in court) and ou know how they have those radar-detector-detectors? (VG2) well this thing would set those off from like 5miles away...
