Adjustable Sun visor for Full Face helmets

I came up with a simple solution to riding with the Sun in your eyes: a painted Sun Visor for my Shoie helmet.
I hope the photos show the painted visor ok. I got tired of trying to avoid the Sun in the early morning or late afternoon.
I figured the most I had to lose was a $29 visor. I masked off the Visor and left about an inch in the middle with a gradual narrowing towards the sides. (remove the visor prior to working on it)

Using a light weight sandpaper (220) I lightly roughed up the area to be painted and then gave it a thorough cleaning with some goof-off solvent. Make sure, if you're sanding, to sand in one direction; lightly. Next, I opted for the Dupli-Color adhesion promoter and that did the trick. After the adhesion promoter dried I layered about 8 light coats of DupliColor Trim Paint- OEM Black. I would suggest trying the adhesion promoter before sanding. If the paint still peels off after removing the masking tape, sand lightly. In my case, I sanded first. The finish on the visors is pretty slick.

I picked both items up at Advance Auto parts. (NOTE: Any decent auto trim paint will do) Allow 10 minutes of drying (windy-Sunny day in my case) between coats. It works like a champ. As the Sun gets higher (or lower) I adjust my Visor accordingly. Remember, spray each coat lightly; this will result in a smoother finish. I don't lose any visibility when the Visor is full-on since the painted area is way below my nose when the visor is all the way down.
