Does regular paint decrease the signal strength of radar waves passing through a medium such as glass?
The reason I ask is because of this. I'm looking to hardwire my RD, and as part of the install I want to relocate the device to above the rearview mirror... however I don't have clear glass like most cars. Besides having a tint strip, I have black painted dots in the area by the rearview mirror.
So, I was wondering whether anyone thinks that these dots will deteriorate the effectiveness of my RD (none, a little, a lot, etc.). Obviously I'll have to get out there and do some testing on a store door opener, but if anyone knows in general whether the paint I have on my windshield should affect my RD please share! Thanks.
