Default OOPS! forgot the window masks

I'm an amature and just painted my second body but unfortunately I got in a hurry and forgot to put the window masks on[:@] LOL...anyway I was thinking I could paint the windows black or silver on the outside or just cut the windows out.
What do you guys think...is there a solution or did I just screw up a $30 body?

if you paint them on the outside they will scratch up in no time, remove them and let lots of dirt/dust in, my recommendation would be cut them out and replace them with a wire mesh

You could cut it out and glue on clear lexan.

What type of paint did you use?
You can use a Q-tip, toothpick and alcohol to rub off the paint.
Cover the outside with black vinyl like the RTRs.
