I am too tall to effectively see anything through the windscreen. I decided to paint it black. I have done this on a few bikes before with great results.

Here's a pic of my results.

Looks good. I have a spare stocker which I bought for this exact reason, just have not got around to it. Probably an off season project now.

Any tips on how to?

I use krylon fusion paint. It's specific for plastic and very easy to use. I applied three coats with about half hour between for drying. If I can do it, anyone can.

I have heard many people say to paint it on the inside since the plastic is clear. This way the paint cant chip. Is that what you did?

Very nice. And a four vehicle garage as well. Perhaps you would consider adopting me? :D

I like.

I'm going to have to do this mod this week.

What prep did you do to the windscreen? Tape off the edges? Sanding? Primer? Anything?

Not to hijack but just an FYI, most auto parts stores sell a spray can called "Night Shades", may be Dupont. Its basically a candy black paint, semi-transparent. Its for painting tail-lights and such to darken them. So its made to be sprayed on plastic lenses. Should work very well for this application, I have used it before on tail-light/headlights and it worked fine. You can determine your darkness depending on how many coats you put on. Just keep the coats light and overlap atleast 50% and allow to dry between coats!

I did this mod a few weeks ago and love the look. I've also gotten many compliments from other people as well.

Quick, easy, cheap mod to a windscreen you don't look through anyway.
