Tore the decals off my old canopy and gave it a paint job. This one was for the practice before doing a new one to see how well it worked. Never painted a plastic canopy before, have to see how it holds up in flight. Windshield is clear coated also. Not sure if I'll do that again, fogged it a little. Pretty happy with how it turned out though.

That looks great Bob. What kind of adhesion promoter did you use?

Bob,

The canopy looks good. Give us the details, ie. type & brand of paint, adhesive, clear coat, etc. Did you use a rattle can?

Thanks. Used krylon and rustoleum cans with the rustoleum plastic primer and clear coat. Beats all that mixing and cleaning, hope it holds up.

It'll hold up about 200% better sans the nitro and vibration. Lotsa great paint options out there when it doesn't have to be 30% nitro fuel proof.
