PDR0098 Epoxyglass canopy is in stock. They're unpainted, i.e they need to be primed and painted. My friend Bobby Smith painted this one for me. He's about the hottest painter in central Florida; maybe anywhere in the nation!

No, it's just as easy to paint either one. The difference is, the paint will stay on the glass canopy, where it will fall off the milk jug. If you want to paint, get a glass canopy, if you want the jug, get vinyl.

By the time it's in your hands about $67, give or take. I'm almost out of them and when they're gone we'll have to figure something else out because my moldmaker had health issue, which caused him to quit.

Do a search here and you'll find a post on the flame technique, which is helpful prior to painting the plastic canopy.

The trick I have always used with success is light sanding then a base coat of duplicolor adhesion promoter. You can get it at auto parts stores in the spray can. It is for auto bumper covers and seems to have worked on every plastic canopy so far!

I meant to do that!!!
