Default Painting your windscreen????

I've seen past threads on people that have painted tinted windscreens. I would like to paint my windscreen & just wondering how well it will hold up??? Any info on prep/paint would also help.

Arrow Re: Painting your windscreen????

I heard a suggestion of having a company that does vinyl graphics come out and measure the job up. They use a high grade of white vinyl and most will custom install it as well.

This was considered the best way about 1000 threads back when the same question was posed.

How would you powder coat a windscreen??? If you make them would you have one for a 27' Fountain Fever??? How much. Looking for all white.

If you have one you have to take it off the boat to paint it. to make a new one about $ 1500 I would need the old one or a pattern

Vinyl would be the easiest and most economical. Probly take a couple hours max. If you are or gonna be near Ft Myers, pm your phone number and I'll be happy to discuss it with ya.
