Re: Replacing Leaky Windows
I have done the paint thing...but more recently have spreading a layer of black DC795 to create the same effect and a better seal. Use the darkest acrylic for best effect. However you end up attaching the lens be careful not to overtighten.. Leave a "gasket" layer under the lense.
Good luck - and don't forget to mask everything inside and out to ease cleanup and for clean finished look.
