it is, but it's probably not polycarbonate; it was cheap (bought it at
the dollar store).
I need to paint this with something that will make it look like smoked
plastic. Some sort of translucent black paint? I will have lights
(LEDs) inside, and the goal is that these lights should show up clearly
when lit, but be completely invisible when dark.
But dammit Jim (*), I'm a roboticist, not a modeler. I haven't painted
any plastic since I was a kid. So I'm hoping some kind soul here can
recommend a specific paint and application technique that is most likely
to work, even in the hands of a newbie such as myself.

too young (or insufficiently geeky) to remember!
