didn't know e. africa didn't have hobbie shops...maybe a paint store might have something..otherwise, you could use the computer you are sitting at and order some online.

You can use any old spray paint to cover the windscreen. Be sure to paint the inside only!!! First wipe it clean with rubbing alcohol and then paint...let it dry and hit it agai with some paint, let dry and do it again, then hold up to the sun, to see if there are any areas that need paint and repeat if needed. I used regular auto touch up spray paint on mine and it does not matter if the paint is gloss or flat, because it will appear to be glossy under the screen......I did use gloss though.
