From my experience, this does not work at all. Not only does it not work, if you try to sand it off, the liner clogs up sandpaper and makes it useless in minutes. My advice would be to either cast from pep, or 'glass it.

Looks great so far. I'm working on a CQB now too. Not quite as far along as you. I don't hold out much hope for window tint on this though. It's a compound curve and tints don't like that. I tried tinting a visor I made from plexiglass for my rogue helm. It's nowhere near as compound a curve as the cqb and I still had problems. I abandoned the tint, and sprayed candy pigment in automotive clearcoat wtih mediocre results.
I'll try and post a pic later so you see what I mean.

Spray on tint works beautifully, but it comes in a very limited selection of colors. If you have an airbrush, there is a great tutorial on how to get that reflective gold effect HERE. Your work looks good. Best of luck with the rest.
