A top-notch backglass restoration may bring a poor machine, destined for
parts, back to be a prized part of a collection. A very good article on how

The basic idea behind the technique is to use printers ink and the Pantone
color matching system. Part of the trick is dealing with opaque and
semi-transparent areas appropriately, and avoiding brush marks. The
article can be found at John's Jukes Website.
