Anyone painted their windscreen?

I was wondering what the red V might look like if the stock screen was painted red or even black. Anyone with pics?

I just finished painting my Givi. Bottom 2/3rd Satin Black along with silver parts and front fender.Came out perfect. I have done this combo to other bikes I've owned and in really cleans the bike up. My tape seam came out perfect on my windshield. My only thought is to run some red trim tape along seam or decal or leave as is. The bike looks outstanding. My only advice is to not paint entire screen. Trust me.

So I went to a car paint store and bought special transparent primer and custom mixed tinted clear coat. If you do use this technic, make sure to read the instructions. In my case it was only 2 minutes between the 2 primer layers, and then let it dry for 5-10 minutes maximum and then start the clear coat layers, with 10 minutes between each layer.

Ok here are a few pics: As you can see the windscreen is not transparent like if a film was used, but it will be more durable and with a windscreen that size you usually don't look through it when you ride. Total cost: about 25$
