NoIt was my understanding radar actually goes through thin plastic membranes and bounces off the metal behind. That isn't true?
I'll leave the pool noodles for you to challenge yourself with.
Plus the material I am aware of is highly carcinogenic. So yeah...not really consumer friendly and it requires regular maintenance for it to be worth a damn.The reading I've done is that radar absorbers work, but the material in its current form is very difficult to apply to a car without ending up looking like a nurf-mobile. Something transparent and very flexible like a clearbra would be ideal, but to my knowledge doesn't exist yet.

??? Radar is reflected off the metal that is behind the bumper skin. If there is absorber between the bumper skin and the metal structure behind it then there's less radar being reflected as it has to go through the absorber twice.You’re jumping the wrong conclusions. If a bumper doesn’t reflect any radar, then how would putting radar absorbing material behind it even help since it’s already a black hole? The rest of the car isn’t made of magical stealth bumper material, either.
Thanks, just what I was looking for.
