Original windshield had a black decal placed there to fade from black to gray on the lowest visible 3" edge. Has anyone successfully recreated that on their replacement unit?

My thinking is to airbrush it, but I struggle with how to do the fade. If someone knows of an off the shelf product that is appropriate (clear backing) for adherence to Lexan, I'd be grateful for their help. Or is it just a matter of technique - I love to hear your thoughts.

I'm no expert so let's get that part out of the way now. I see three options though: leave it be, which you're clearly not big on; air brush it, which is a matter of using window tint paint and starting at low pressure the building up for the dark areas; and the last I can think of is to find a good sign shop and see if they can make you a "decal"...

If you have used pledge on it, the paint won't stick.

Stu - the new windshield is still in the box - but I will wipe it off before trying anything.

Kevin - Thanks for your suggestions. Using window tint didn't occur to me as I was thinking of black air brush paint with a thin coat of clear on top of it, since it would be on the windshield's inside surface. But tint might be better suited as long as it agrees with plastic.

I think some of the guys around here who do automotive grafics have that stuff. My check with someone in your neck of the woods.
