I seen other post concerning this and they were painting, I want to say there is a can spray paint that is a perfect match available at autozone,advance auto and such.

I'll get the specifics tonight but it's just duplicolor wheel coating (spray paint).

Did anyone notice the huge gap between the walk thru windshield and the driver's side windshield, especially at the base?

You could do some kind of wrap (sticker) that matches the color of the boat. Paint might be easier.

When i got the letters added to my boat I had them do the chrome stripe on mine red and i think it cost about $40. It would be a little trickier with the piece you are pointing out but could probably still be done.

Thats my boat! It's kinda wierd that it's peeling there and where i put the mirror looks perfect. I'm interested cause I want to get it looking good again. And there is kind of a big gap at the bottom of the windshield. The bottom thing that you turn so the window can't open doesnt even touch the other side of the wind shield. It bothers me but I feel like you would have to change the angle of the opening window and then it would look off compared to the other two windshield pieces so I just live with it.

Mine is doing the same thing and it started with people wearing Rings i think and walking back and forth from the bow.

Newty took his winshield off and then apart because he was retinting his windshield last summer and while it was apart he sanded and repainted the entire thing. I am thinking of doing this as well.

Just not sure yet.

You could do a sticker type repair and as long as its flexable you just use soaper water to apply it with no bubbles and then use a heat gun or dryer to make it burn all the water out.

Heres the link to my paint/tint project. Its really easy. I've had zero chipping or peeling since the repaint. But then again I lightly sanded the surface before I painted.

You can always fly me out and I can do it for you! I could use a little Florida sun about now, as my skin is a light shade of blue.
