Clear LRS Mako - Needs Black Tint on Bottom

I purchased the clear LRS Mako shield and am very happy with it. The shield needs the black tint piece on the bottom 3 inches of the shield though. The fairing doesn't line up perfect the tint would hide that. What would you guys suggest to accomplish that?

Get a little crazy while you still can...it's later than you think.

what I'm about to do to my 8" phantom shield. Hit with a coat of the John Deere Blitz black. I've done it to another shield. since you only want a trim at the bottom just tape of the part you dont want painted and light sand with a 600-800 grit paper and then spray about 3 light coats and you should be fine. Additionally what works real good is the dupli-color ceramic matte black engine paint you can get at oreilly auto parts. it lays a real smooth finish.

As stated above for prep and you can also use Dupont "Fusion" aerosol paint from Ace hardware. It's made to paint plastic and sticks really well.
