Painting a Windscreen - I Had Issues!!
I went to paint the inside of my trimmed down V-Stream windscreen and had some major issues. I've painted dozens of windscreens over the years, all without issue. After carefully masking off the front side, I always clean the inside with alcohol, to remove any fingerprints and/or oils/residues/dirt/etc. I also use paint that is made for RC car bodies, since it's supposed to adhere great to plastics and acrylics.
However.....after painting the inside of my V-Stream, and letting it dry for a few days, the paint peeled right off!!! I thought I read somewhere that National Cycles (V-Stream maker) uses some sort of coating on their screens. I (incorrectly) assumed it would just be on the outside of the screen.
My plan is to wet sand the inside with 1500 grit to "rough it up" a bit, then try painting it again. Has anyone ever painted the inside of a V-Stream windscreen? Any other thoughts or ideas as to why the paint didn't stick the first time?
