Default Paint choice

Paint choice? Hey guys, I'd like to paint the windshield of my Synergy N7 windshield a high gloss black instead of the hard to see gray. Is there a rattle can paint that I can use for this, as well as clear? No airbrush, or way of spraying automotive paint. Thanks

Home Depot carries quite a variety of colors...

Just be sure it says Plastic on the can label and you're good to go

Do a test piece first, so you can practice and check the finish

Default Covered in nitro juice

I was curious, didn't know how different paints act when they are covered in nitro fuel.

LustreKote is nitro proof. I found some at my LHS and used their clear coat to fuel proof a couple canopies.
