Has anyone Painted stock windshield?

Has anyone painted the k1200r polycarbonate stock windshield?

If so how does it look, hold up and what technique was used to paint?

Photos would be great as well.

Thank you in advance.

Bi-Annual Lurk...

It was time for my biannual visit to my old K12R forum stomping grounds, and when I got here I saw this post, so thought I'd post a couple pics of my long lost (and sorely missed) steed with its painted stock screen.

I have also painted my windshield. It is really simple;

1.Go to lowes and in the paint section you will find scotch brite pads, pick up a low abrasion pad.

2. Pick up a rattle can of whatever color spray paint you like

3. go home and use the scotch brite pad on the INSIDE of the windshield. This is important, it will allow you to still have the shiny look to the windshield, as well over times when bugs hit the windshield it will not chip the paint. Look at the pictures posted by PrivateAxis and you will see his is done like this. Then look at Speed_King pictures and you will see his paint is on the top.

4. after scuffing up the INSIDE on the screen, make sure it is cleaned. Water and light soap works as long as you dry it fully.

5. Tape the outside of the screen so that you dont get any over spray on the front.

6. Apply light coats for a even finish, allow the paint to become tacky between coats, it does not have to be totally dry to recoat. Apply about 4-5 light coats then allow to fully dry.

7. Install, gawk at your DIY mod, post pictures on this site and thank everyone haha!
