After seeing some modifications to the Triumph Summer Windshield I combined a couple. From our friends in the British Islands; RIII Owners Club (UK) I utilized their SS/ Chrome Screen Embellisher. Then painted/ pin striped the lower portion of the Triumph Summer Windshield as done by one of members in the atlanta area . The glare from all the chrome was very distracting in the summer.

Went to a Harley Free Food event yesterday and got alot of lookers. They were most impressed with the engine, power and price. Had to take on some V-Rods. Left them in the dust.

The darkened lower section can be quite an advantage. Several late afternoon/early evening sunset rides were quite blinding. And for a cyclops that can be quite a hazard.

That works quite well with your paint color as well.

What type of paint did you use (Krylon, Rustoleum, etc) and how durable do you think it will be? Do you know if it can it be removed at a later time without damage to the shield?

It's a great idea.

We used regular flat black Krylon paint. You do not need to sand down the windscreen to make it adhere but, thats what I did. Longevity is probably good. My windscreen will never be clear again. Thats OK. The glare reduction is fantastic.
