When I was using my stock screen it was painted black. I just used Krylon Fusion Spray Paint on the inside, it worked fine. And the screen is small enough to where you don't need to look through it, so I had no issues with my field of vision.

I'm just trying to help you. I guess I can do your searching for you. I know its a little confusing, the title says 'flipped', and you're looking for painted. Turns out, on page 2, there's a painted windscreen with sparse instructions. If that's not good enough, PM the guy (his name shouldn't be hard to find) & ask him more details.

There, I've 'let you know'.




From page 2:

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$




Notice his windscreen is NOT flipped...
