Default RE: Polycarbonate spray for acrylic?

Thank you so much RGX Blade for your kind advice. I do have some follow-up questions.

1. Wouldn't using scotch brite on the window visor surface cause scratches?

2. As I live outside of US, I cannot find the brands of adhesion promoter you suggested. However, I came across a brand that says this - "DPI Adhesion Promoter 228's is specially formulated as an adhesion promoter for coating on polyolefin plastics because conventional coatings do not adhere well to untreated PE, PP and elastomer blends such as TPO's used in many car bumpers ." Do you think its okay to use this?

3. The Tamiya color that I intend to use is translucent type - smokey black color (transparent black). Would spraying Adhesion Promoter affects the transparent black tamiya color in any way?

4. For finishing coat, any clear coat will do?

5. When you say buff, you mean using car wax to polish it off?

6. Do I spray all these different coats/layers on the inner or outer part of the visor?

Thank you!
