just wondering what exactly doo you have to doo to paint a windshield. My windshield is trancelucide yellow and want to paint it black. Doo I only need to scuff the plastic with a steel wool prime and paint or is there more to it?

yes painting the back is the best method for clear parts but on the yellow you should just scuff it, prime it and paint it. a little flexing agent in the paint might not hurt(like they use on plastic car bumpers) hope this helps. it may be cheaper to buy a black one no?

Jeepster, here is one method for painting a windshield. I would not scuff it at all as it might show. Spray desired colour on the iniside of the windshield, this way it will not scratch and peel on the outside. CT has plastic spray paint that bonds good and comes in many colours. Later Perm

I too have always painted the inside,,, but that is usually painting a clear windshield black,,,, yours has a yellow tint to it,,, so not sure what painting the back only will do,,,, I would do it first and see,,, then go from there,,,,
Just make sure it's clean. That's where most paint jobs fail. Then use VERY light coats of paint. Don't even try to turn it completely black on the first coat. Put a couple more light coats on and you've got it. No more paint than necessary. I don't think you'll have any trouble with the yellow.
