.........some of you would wonder if I know what a windshield is, and yes I do.
Mine, like many of the era, was pitted where the anodized finish had deteriorated.
That makes it doubly impossible to polish.
I used a chemical attack to get to the pitting in order to stop it, and then used a self etching primer.
Once the primer was on, then I sanded it with wet sandpaper, then added another layer of primer, sanded, another layer of primer, etc., until the little craters left by corrosion were gone. The final act was metallic spray paint, much like what Eric Jensen and Dave Krugler did. Yes I have a windshield for the Skiff, and it will go on next season, promise.
