it's difficult to prep clear lexan to show the paint through the topside, though. also, it CAN fog the lexan up.

use some spaz stix pre-prep spray before painting with the chrom or color change. It's awesome! I use it after peeling off masking to get rid of the static charge and residue from liquid mask. Just spray it lightly and let dry and it will not attack your existing paint.

Just rhino line the inside before you remove the window decals the paint wont chip. They sell it at wal mart for like 6 dollars a can.
