So sand, fill and paint the outside with semi-gloss - it should work a treat

FYI - have been on a coupla short city rides, tomorrow an extended 300 km ride. From what I can see already the smaller screen allows a lot more air in (great for our summers), a lot less buffeting at the lower speeds - we'll see how that works at higher speeds. The chest from the top of my breastbone down is protected - above is in the airflow. Nice and cooooool!

Depending on how bad the nicks and scratches are, you might be able to buff it out with a polishing compound. Even so, painting the outside should do just fine. On the bike in my avatar, the yellow number plate is painted partially on the windscreen. I used Krylon brand, and also used their primer. Actually, the whole bike is painted with Krylon spray paint. FWIW, the windscreen should probably have a light scuff on it so that the paint adheres to it. I used Scotch brite pads (general purpose #7447) to give it a light haze and then cleaned with alcohol.
